JACKSONVILLE BEACH, Fla. -- The State of Florida designated Jacksonville Beach's lifeguard station as a historic landmark Saturday.

Mayor Charlie Latham and Jacksonville Council President Bill Gulliford helped preside over the ceremony.

The current lifesaving corps building was built in 1946.

The lifeguard organization that is run out of the building estimates that they have performed at least 1,430 lifesaving rescues and have responded to more than 25,000 medical calls.

A landmark in Florida can be considered historic when it becomes at least 50 years old and has a cultural, historical, and architectural significance.
