Point Bonita Lighthouse 2

Photograph of Point Bonita Lighthouse Buildings for Sale
 

Point Bonita Lighthouse located just north of San Francisco in the Marin Headlands. This photo shows the lower buildings at the lighthouse.

The original Point Bonita Lighthouse, a 56 ft. brick tower, was located too high. Unlike the East Coast of the United States, the West Coast has dense high fog, which leaves lower elevations clear. The original light was 306 ft. above sea level so the second order Fresnel lens was often cloaked in fog and could not be seen from the sea. In 1877, the lighthouse was moved to its current location at 124 ft. above sea level.

Available in various sizes with or without mattes and frames.
