Round Island Lighthouse

Round Island Lighthouse Pascagoula
Round Island Lighthouse Pascagoula

Round Island Lighthouse stood from 1859 to 1998 on the southwest end of Round Island in the Mississippi Sound, 4 miles (6.4 km) south of Pascagoula, Mississippi. In September 1998, the lighthouse was toppled by Hurricane Georges. In 2010, the base of the structure and other lighthouse remnants were removed from Round Island and relocated within the City of Pascagoula for restoration. It is whitewashed to reflect the look it had on the island in the 1960s and 1970s. The lantern sits on a circular base of Brazilian soap stone.
