We achieved a major milestone last night!

We achieved a major milestone last night! Our Letter of Intent with International Chimney Corporation was signed entering us into an agreement to start stabilization on the lighthouse this fall. How can you help? Any donation large or small will be greatly appreciated! We have funds to install bands with turnbuckles to stop the crack, install a temporary cover to slow water infiltration, and fill some of the cracks with historic mortar, but any extra funds will help patch more masonry. We also elected 3 new board members last night. In the pictures are Carolyn Thibodeaux, Wendy Harrington, Robin Anderson, Norris East, and sitting is Andrew Tingler. Not pictured is Christina Tingler and Clair Marceaux.

Happy Birthday to our home state! Louisiana became the 18th state in the union during 1812 making the land the lighthouse is on the southwest point of the United States.

Happy Birthday to our home state! Louisiana became the 18th state in the union during 1812 making the land the lighthouse is on the southwest point of the United States. This is the reason the lighthouse was built on the Louisiana side of the river after talks with land owners in Texas broke down. The U.S. already owned land on the LA side as a military reserve prior to Texas becoming a state in 1845. Today the lighthouse is the only remaining piece of this reserve that settlers and merchants would sail by before checking into U.S. Customs at Garrison Ridge to the north.
