Boaters and people riding the ferry to and from Bolivar Peninsula will notice a change in an iconic landmark that has towered over the entrance to Galveston Bay for generations. On Monday, a crew from McMillan Building Movers, Inc. removed the lantern house of the 150-year-old Bolivar Point Lighthouse.

The removal of the metal structure is part of the first phase of the Bolivar Point Lighthouse Foundation’s restoration project. “We just made history. It’s the first thing that had to be removed,” the foundation’s executive director, Amy Maxwell Chase, said.
