The Hilton Head Rear Range Lighthouse at Palmetto Dunes Oceanfront Resort – also known as the Leamington Lighthouse -- serves as a familiar sight overlooking the resort’s award-winning Arthur Hills Golf Course. This historic lighthouse, which is featured on the National Register of Historic Places and part of the Inventory of Historic Light Stations, occupies a unique place in Hilton Head Island history. One of only a handful of surviving lighthouses in South Carolina, the Hilton Head Rear Range Lighthouse is the only historic lighthouse on Hilton Head Island. Many share stories that the famed lighthouse is haunted by "The Blue Lady", the daughter of the last lighthouse operator. The Live Oak stands close to the Hilton Head Rear Range Lighthouse and is one of Hilton Head Island’s oldest Live Oak trees. The live oak is approximately 70 ft. tall, has a canopy spread of approximately 150 ft. and is calculated to be 430-455 years old.
