Activated in 1966, Diamond Shoals was the second to last of the "Texas Tower" lighthouses to be built. Over the years the unmanned lighthouse suffered significant damage and the catwalks were found to be so rotten that the light could only be safely visited by helicopter. The light was extinguished in 2001 and removed.
The tower still stands and is frequented by fishermen for the many species of fish that live below and near it. Amberjack and barracuda are some of the larger fish that call Diamond Shoals light tower their home.
Look for Casper, our mascot black cat, sitting on the catwalk wishing someone would come whisker him away!. This is the sign of an authentic Cat’s Meow.
This ¾" thick wooden lighthouse keepsake is handcrafted in the U.S. with colorful details. It can set neatly on a shelf, wainscoting, or window/door trim to remind you of a special place you've visited or dream of visiting someday. A short description is written on the back.
