New Canal Lighthouse, Lousisiana, USA
The first lighthouse in this place was established in 1838, It is located at the north end of the New Basin Canal. The New Canal Lighthouse as can be seen dates back to 1890. It was badly damaged during hurricane Katrina 2005 and finally collapsed. It was replaced by a light on the pole and efforts are being made to restore the old lighthouse.
This great addition to my lighthouse collection was sent by Jackie Siears for the WiP January General Swap.
