It was not lit during the Civil War when Confederate troops wanted to hurt the Union efforts. It began operating again in 1868 until a hurricane in 1942 damaged it to the point of condemnation by the Coast Guard. It was moved to Point Comfort in 1943 And then to Port Lavaca in 1979. After much restoration, the lighthouse serves as Port Lavaca's Visitor's Center.
