Lighthouse is not an Oregon Lighthouse, it is in Northern California
at Crescent City, just a few miles away from the Oregon border. It is accessible only at low tide.
It's a beautiful
light house with the light mounted atop the roof. It was named Battery
Point after the ship America in 1855 caught fire and three cannons
were salvaged and mounted atop the tiny islet. That same year Congress
granted $15,000 to build the lighthouse. The fourth order Fresnel lens
in the lantern room first illuminated the night sky at Crescent City
on December 10, 1856.
