Lighthouse at Tchefuncte River, 1900
The original lighthouse on Lake Pontchartrain at the Tchefuncte River, built in 1837, was destroyed during the Civil War and rebuilt shortly thereafter. It has undergone several restorations over the years and is still recovering from Hurricane Katrina damage. Now the property of the town of Madisonville, the lighthouse is operated by the Lake Pontchartrain Basin Maritime Museum.
