A Lighthouse of gulfCoast

LA 12 SouthWest Pass (Modern)

In 1929, a light and fog signal were established at the end of the east jetty, which was constructed at the entrance to the pass. The jetty light was upgraded to serve as the primary entrance light in 1953. It performed this function until 1965, when the modern tower was placed in the waters just off the jetties. This substantial structure was in service until the fall of 2007 when it was demolished and replaced by a skeletal tower perched atop a platform supported by three steel piles.
