The Round Island Lighthouse, c. 1859, once stood off the coast of Pacagoula on Round Island. Damaged by various hurricanes over the years it was moved to the mainland in 2010. It is whitewashed to reflect the look it had on the island in the 1960s and 1970s. The lantern sits on a circular base of Brazilian soap stone. Now in the heart of downtown Pascagoula, it is open for tours 10am to 5pm on Friday and Saturday.
