About New Canal Lighthouse, New Orleans

Originally built in 1839, the lighthouse was rebuilt in the Lake Ponchartrain Basin Foundation and is the 4th lighthouse built on the same grounds. The lighthouse was damaged in the Hurricane Katrina and was fully restored while still keeping its classic design.

The modern day lighthouse accommodates a museum, a gift shop and a view of the beautiful lake. A walk along the lighthouse to see its old-charm against the serene lake, is perfect for an afternoon stroll.

  • What a great job they have done restoring this beautiful piece of history. Well worth the visit and a tour. Beautiful grounds, easy to get to and very beautiful. The gift shop is small and quaint but has lots of nice items and all the proceeds goes to help save the lighthouse and the lake.

  • Tour guides are awesome, very friendly, personable with tons of knowledge. Their gift shop has some amazing gift ideas.

  • Was stationed there on active duty with the US Coast Guard back in the late 1980s,. Glad to see it was rebuilt.

  • The tour guide was amazing she did a wonderful job!!!!

  • Took the annual trolley tour. Entire event was very well done. Food also very good
