A Lighthouse of California

CA 31 Punta Gorda
latitude 40° 14' 57.8" N
longitude 124° 21' 1.6" W

Punta Gorda Lighthouse was built in 1911 and was first lit in 1912. After World War II, it was decided that given the remoteness of the station it was too costly to maintain. A lighted buoy was placed offshore, the fourth order Fresnel lens was removed, and the station was boarded up and deactivated in 1951. The keeper's house and all other station buildings were demolished.
