The Savannah Texas Tower was constructed and placed in operation in 1964, and was built to be an automated light, controlled by the personnel at the Tybee Island Light Station.
A foreign-flagged freighter, the Singapore container ship Neptune Jade, struck the tower in November 1996. The collision sheared off and destroyed the entire structure. A buoy marked the wreckage until a salvage company was contracted to retrieve the wreckage off the ocean floor for scrapping.
