Point Cabrillo under construction

The Point Cabrillo lighthouse is a little over a 100 years old – her glim (light) was first lit in 1909. The lighthouse is situated on top of a 50 foot bluff about two miles north of Mendocino and is in full operating condition. One of our members, Joe Green, acts as a docent there.

This photo, the only one I know of that shows her under construction, must have been taken in 1908 or 1909 – 110 years ago!
