Reserve your brick to help support the New Canal Lighthouse, a beacon of hope and safety for New Orleans for over 100 years, and become a part of history.
The New Canal Lighthouse at West End along Lakeshore Drive was severely damaged by Hurricanes Katrina and Rita in 2005. The Lake Pontchartrain Basin Foundation has rebuilt the Lighthouse, and it now houses a museum and education center that offers to the public environmental and historical programs focusing on the ecology of the Pontchartrain Basin, the history of the New Orleans region, and the history of the Lighthouse.
Now you can help support this historic icon by purchasing a personalized Lighthouse Brick for yourself or as a gift. Bricks come in three price levels listed below. You may list your name, the name of a loved one, friend, old boat, camp, pet club, the date, etc. It’s up to you!
Everyone purchasing a brick will receive a commemorative certificate recognizing you as a Lighthouse supporter. When you purchase a brick as a gift, your recipient will also receive a commemorative brick certificate.
Bricks are installed in groups every few months. We will notify you when your brick is installed and show you where it’s located on the site when you come to visit.
All bricks have a maximum of 18 characters on each line. Each space and all punctuation counts as a character. (Please note that exceeding 18 characters per line may delay the processing of your brick order.)
