Point Cabrillo Light Station State Historic Park

Point Cabrillo Light Station State Historic Park

Point Cabrillo Light Station State Historic Park is a living link to California’s history, featuring a beautifully rehabilitaed 1909 lighthouse and 11 other historic structures. In a nearby cove, rest the remians of the Frolic, an importnant Gold-Rush-era shipwreck.

The Light station was built and completed by 1909, after the 1906 San Francisco earthquake. Today the light station is an offical aid to navigation, with the fresnel lens in continuous operation.
