Biloxi Lighthouse, Biloxi, Mississippi, USA

Separated from the Gulf of Mexico only by Highway 90 and Biloxi Beach, the Biloxi Lighthouse is a 19th century, 64 foot tall, cast iron landmark in downtown Biloxi, Mississippi. It was erected in 1848. Iron plates cast by Murray and Hazlehurst Vulcan Works in Baltimore were bolted together and a brick lining was put in place for additional strength. It was one of the first cast iron lighthouses built in the southern United States.

In August of 2005, Hurricane Katrina, a deadly Category 5 hurricane, inflicted great damage on the city. The bottom third of the lighthouse was flooded destroying the electrical system. The wind and waves broke windows in the light cupola and dislodged brick on the interior. In 14 months, the city restored the lighthouse and opened it to the public. It is considered a symbol of the city’s resilience and resolve.

More About USA

The United States is one of the most diverse countries on earth, jam packed full of amazing sights from St. Patrick's cathedral in New York to Mount Hollywood California.The Northeast region is where it all started. Thirteen British colonies fought the American Revolution from here and won their independence in the first successful colonial rebellion in history. Take a look at these rolling hills carpeted with foliage along the Hudson river here, north of New York City.The American south is known for its polite people and slow pace of life. Probably they move slowly because it's so hot. Southerners tend not to trust people from "up north" because they talk too fast. Here's a cemetery in Georgia where you can find graves of soldiers from the Civil War.The West Coast is sort of like another country that exists to make the east coast jealous. California is full of nothing but grizzly old miners digging for gold, a few gangster rappers, and then actors. That is to say, the West Coast functions as the imagination of the US, like a weird little brother who teases everybody then gets famous for making freaky art.The central part of the country is flat farmland all the way over to the Rocky Mountains. Up in the northwest corner you can find creative people in places like Portland and Seattle, along with awesome snowboarding and good beer. Text by Steve Smith.
