Battery Gladden 

Photo Gallery #3

The Following Battery Gladden Lighthouse Photographs are from the  Johnny Newman Collection, and the late Mignonette Lambert McDonald. We hope you enjoy viewing them.

If you know of a relic from any Alabama Lighthouse that is in someone's private collection please ask
them to donate it to the Alabama Lighthouse Association for future generations to see and enjoy! We guarantee no negative attitudes, just our gratitude

Sand Island Lighthouse has lost all of the round floor plates and the door off of the top of the lighthouse.
Full credit for restoring items to the Lighthouses can be given!

Any old lighthouse photos or documents also would be appreciated.

The Battery Gladden  Lighthouse is lost to us and our children forever.
Photographs  are all that remain.
Let's not let this happen to another Alabama Lighthouse!

How the Battery Gladden Page began

For those of you who are wondering what Battery Gladden Lighthouse information
 is doing on the Sand Island Lighthouse web pages I provide the following explanation.
Some of this  Battery Gladden information was provided to me by Mignonette Lambert McDonald
 just a very short time before she passed away.
 Aunt Mignonette was my grandmothers sister. I had no idea before she called me on the telephone
that I had a relative who was once a  Battery Gladden lighthouse keeper.
She had been following my involvement with the Sand Island Lighthouse
and thought the Battery Gladden Information should be preserved.
I agreed and forwarded the information to the Alabama Historical Commission and developed this web page.
As we discover more information it will be added to the web page.
I hope you enjoyed viewing this information.
