Wednesday, April 16th at 7pm – Lighthouses of Texas presented by author Steph McDougal. Lighthouses of Texas chronicles lighthouse history in the state from when Texans won their independence from Mexico in 1836 to modern automated lighthouses of the twentieth century. Images of how lighthouses have changed throughout the decades provide readers with a visual history of the evolution of the structures, especially when many lighthouses today have been abandoned or are privately owned. MacDougal hopes that this book “will spur lighthouse-related tourism along the Texas Gulf Coast and help to encourage the restoration of the remaining lighthouses, some of which are in deteriorated condition.” Steph McDougal, an Ohio native with ties to New England, now hangs her hat in Houston, Texas. Steph’s first published book is Lighthouses of Texas. She also contributed to Buildings of Texas: Volume 1 and has written journal articles and historical narratives. Steph remains enthralled by her first preservation love, America’s historic ballrooms of the Big Band era.
