Sketch of Lighthouse

The Back Story:

Point Arena  

The current Point Arena lighthouse was built in 1908, after the 1906 San Francisco earthquake seriously damaged the 1870 tower.  This was the first reinforced concrete lighthouse built in the U.S.  The light was automated in 1977 and the Coast Guard left the station.  The Point Arena Lighthouse Keepers Inc. was formed in 1982 with the goal of restoring the station and opening it up to the public.  The organization received the deed to the light station in 1996.  The three keepers houses are available for rent.


About the Artist:
Paul M. Bradley Jr., an architect by profession, began drawing lighthouses after a New England vacation sparked his interest in the structures. His drawings appear quarterly in the Keeper’s Log a publication of the U.S. Lighthouse Society (www.uslhs.org).
