Cabrillo Monument | Old Point Loma Lighthouse

Fine Art Photography - San Diego Landscapes The original Point Loma Lighthouse is a historic lighthouse located on the Point Loma peninsula at the mouth of San Diego Bay in San Diego, California. It is situated in the Cabrillo National Monument. It is no longer in operation as a lighthouse but is open to the public as a museum. It was built in 1855 by the United States government after California's admission as a state. At a height of 462 feet (lens), the location on top of a 400-foot cliff meant that fog and low clouds often obscured the light from the view of ships. On March 23, 1891, the flame was permanently extinguished and the light was replaced by the New Point Loma lighthouse at a lower elevation. (Text shared from Wikipedia:
