    Cool Stuff
    Lighthouses: FAQ
    Source: The United States Coast Guard Our first lighthouses were actually given to us by Nature. Sailors sometimes used landmarks such as glowing volcanoes to guide them. In the Ancient World, trading ships were eventually built enabling navigators to sail long distances to buy and sell goods. In the days of wooden ships with sails, the wind and waves could easily push them against the rocks and wreck them. And so, the need for lighthouses as warning signals arose. Today we call people who study (or are interested in) lighthouses pharologists. The name comes from that famous lighthouse. What is a lighthouse? It is a tower with a bright light at the top, located at an important or dangerous place regarding navigation (travel over water). The two main purposes of a lighthouse are to serve as a navigational aid and to warn boats of dangerous areas. It is like a traffic sign on the sea. Do all lighthouses look alike? Although we often think of a lighthouse as a tall, white conical tower, there are many, many variations of design. Depending on its location, it might be tall (where the land was very flat) or short and squat (where there was a high cliff or rocky coast). It could be square, octagonal (with eight sides), conical (like an ice cream cone upside down), or cylindrical (like a very fat pipe). When the lighthouses were built, they were constructed with whatever materials were most readily available. They were designed to fit the local geographic and climatic conditions. Some are made of stone; others brick, concrete, wood, steel, cast iron, and even tabby (a mixture of shells, lime, sand and water).

    AFTER THE STORM - OCT. 1998 O n the 19th of September, 1998, Bob and I were in Pascagoula, Mississippi at the invitation of one of the members of the Committee to Save Round Island Lighthouse, Margaret Meiselbach. The committee had formed not too long before and were just getting their information together as to what they hoped to accomplish and how they hoped to accomplish it. They had already had a donation of rip rap dumped out in the water to form a breakwater to protect the lighthouse, so the work had started, all to no avail. M argaret had arranged for a boat to take us out to Round Island so that we could shoot the “before” photos. That was meant to be: before the restoration. We had been there five years before and photographed Round Island Lighthouse and now, we were shocked to see that the water was lapping at the base of the lighthouse. It truly needed restoration and preservation. We had a great boat trip out on a gorgeous day. Tropical Storm Hermine was moving in and I kept thinking about an old story I’d heard about some people going out to Round Island to photograph it and caught in a sudden squall off the Gulf, they drowned.

    West Rigolets, Louisiana
    I f you drive along Highway 90 in Louisiana, stop and take a look at Fort Pike, an old Civil War Fort. And when you leave Fort Pike going east, you'll cross the bridge across the Pearl River. As you cross, look over your left shoulder and off in the distance on the west side of the river, you will see the outline of a small lighthouse. It's not one of those tall towers, but a little square house with the tower in the middle of the roof. It's the West Rigolets (Rigolay) Lighthouse.
    B uilt as a guide to vessels entering the Rigolets, the lighthouse was finished in 1855. It is a small building, with the light originally just 30 feet above the lake. The Rigolets are channels connecting Lake Ponchartrain to Mississippi sound. This little lighthouse went through hurricanes and storms and guided ships until 1945 when it was discontinued. During the Civil War, the keeper was murdered. Although no one ever discovered "who dunnit", he was the only lighthouse keeper known to be killed at his post during the hostilities. From the time it was discontinued, the lighthouse was more or less left to rot.
    T he first time we tried to see it, we could only see the lighthouse from the bridge. We had thought we could drive to it, but that turned out to be impossible. We looked around for a marina or someone with a boat. At that time the area seemed almost deserted and we were not able to get out to the lighthouse.
