AL 2.  Mobile Point, Alabama
 

Buy photos of Alabama lighthouses now.


Mobile Point lighthouse was at Fort Morgan,  a Civil War Fort at the mouth of Mobile Bay.
As far as we know, the lighthouse is not at the Fort, taken down because
of the bad condition, but stored somewhere awaiting a proper restoration.

 

AL2-A
Mobile Point Lighthouse, soon after it was restored some years back.


 

AL2-B
This is how it looked when we first saw it.  The story is that it was cut down and sold for junk.  The man who bought it didn't have the heart to cut it up and destroy it, but it stayed in a junkyard for years.  I believe the story goes that after he died, his sons donated it back to the Fort and the Park Service.  If anyone knows different, please let me know.



Prints of these historic pictures are for sale.

WE took these two photos at a later date to show
the rust at Mobile Point.
