Have a question about our lighthouse? Ask away, 'cause the answers are probably here.
During World War II, the Point Pinos Lighthouse served as the headquarters for a Beach Patrol, charged with watching for invading submarines. During the winter of 1941-42 local residents standing on the beach could see a Japanese submarine attack a tanker in Monterey Bay.
