1984. 110 ft (33.5 m) square concrete tower with gallery, topped by a large square observation room. The lighthouse is actually painted in a red and white checkerboard pattern, but from each side it appears to have red and white horizontal bands. Built privately, this lighthouse was not a success commercially; it was repossessed by a bank in 1990 and deteriorated for years. It appears that sometime in 2006-07 it was purchased and restored. Located near Buchanan Dam off TX 29 about halfway between Burnet and Llano in Llano County and 60 mi (96 km) northwest of Austin. Site and tower closed, although the lighthouse is easily seen from the state highway.
