Posted: Updated:

PORT ISABEL – The 165-year-old lighthouse in Port Isabel is open after months of renovations.

The lighthouse had been closed since October 2016.

The updates cost the city $630,000.

The popular tourist sire is one of the 16 lighthouses originally constructed along the Texas coast. But it’s the only lighthouse that’s open to the public.

It was built in 1853.
