The Long Beach Bar Light was destroyed in 1963 by fire. A replica was rebuilt (the foundation survived). The building was reassembled in 1990, and re-activated as a navigational aid in 1993.
The Archives Center at the Smithsonian National Museum of American History has a collection (#1055) of souvenir postcards of lighthouses and has digitized 272 of these and made them available online. These include postcards of Orient Long Beach Bar Light with links to customized nautical charts provided by National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration.
