Kemah, Texas: Lighthouse Water Tower

It's a lighthouse. It's a water tower. It's two infrastructure structures in one! And it's next to a building with a back-up lighthouse. Kemah is crazy!

Lighthouse Water Tower

Allow yourself a little imagination as you gaze up at the blue and white stripes from the base of the Kemah, Texas water tower. Look past its gallery to the bright red dome that tops this replica of a light house to note that the bright red dome of Kemah's water tower sits like the cherry on top of the perfect fudge sundae overlooking the Bay.

A second lighthouse in town overlooks the Boardwalk. This town is rockin' again after Ike's unwelcome visit.
