Hurricane Katrina damaged many buildings in the Greater New Orleans Area of those were the many famous lighthouses. I remember growing up at West End seeing the old lighthouse overlook Lake Pontchartrain in calm and stormy weather, now it lays toppled over. I do have many pictures of the light as I use photographs to paint from but I would love to know if the Historic West End Lighthouse will be repaired. I have other lighthouses on my paintings page linked below.
