This photo was taken before Hurricane Ike. After the hurricane the pier and the pilings were swept away. Today nothing of the pier remains.
It is a unique and beautiful city.

La boca de incendios es estrictamente para el turista. No funciona. Los edificios detrás de la foto son The Beaumont Enterprise, la ciudad de Beaumont Fire Museum, y el puente de hierro de Chicago y complejo.

We were tourists on this place
The Sabine Pass Light, one of only three built in the United States of similar design, went into operation in 1857. It remained lit for 95 years with the exception of a brief period during the Civil War when it was temporarily shut down. The light was permanently extinguished by the Coast Guard in 1952 when modern technology made it obsolete. The wharfs, keeper's house and wooden outbuilding have all been destroyed by marsh fire. The lighthouse has since been entered into the National Register of Historic Places, reference #81000290. The lighthouse is located on the Louisiana side of the Sabine River across from the community of Sabine Pass, Texas.
A restoration effort is being made by the Cameron Preservation Society.
