Sabine Pass Lighthouse


The Sabine Pass Lighthouse, one of only three built in the United States of similar design, went into operation in 1857. It remained lit for 95 years with the exception of a brief period during the Civil War when it was temporarily shut down. The light was permanently extinguished by the Coast Guard in 1952 when modern technology made it obsolete. Listed on the National Register of Historical Places, the Cameron Preservation Alliance is working on funding to restore and eventually re-open the lighthouse to the public. Currently you can only see the lighthouse from across the moat.
