Have a question about our lighthouse? Ask away, 'cause the answers are probably here.
Point Pinos still has its original Fresnel lens, which was manufactured by Leturneau & Lapaute in Paris, France at a cost of $3810. The lens was then shipped "around the horn" (of South America) to San Francisco and brought overland to Point Pinos.
