Folly Point Lighthouse

Lighthouse in Port Antonio

Near the Folly mansion stands the orange candy-striped Folly Point Lighthouse, built in 1888, which overlooks Monkey Island. Said island adds even more Gatsby-esque pathos to the story: Mitchell once housed a colony of pet monkeys here, introduced by son-in-law Hiram Bingham, the archaeologist who rediscovered Machu Picchu in the 1911.
