Pigeon Point Lighthouse is not merely a tower made of brick and mortar. Its walls are filled with tales of the people who lived, worked and sometimes died there. Whether they were mountain men or dairymen, shore whalers or ship masters, business moguls or sawmill operators, sailors who protected our shores or women who braved the sea, each person connected to Pigeon Point's history left an indelible imprint. They all contributed to a vivid portrait of significant maritime events and life on the central California coast. It is their human experiences that provide us with the tower's true story and offer a glimpse into a vanished way of life.
