Point Arena Lighthouse 1870

Pigeon Point Lighthouse and Carpenter Shop (present day)

* The Pigeon Point Lighthouse equals the height of the Point Arena Lighthouse, but is not open to the public for a “climb to the top.” The original Point Arena Lighthouse was the twin of the Pigeon Point Lighthouse, but it was irreparably damaged in the 1906 earthquake and replaced by the current tower that was completed in 1908.
