Trinidad Head Light (Replica)

"Trinidad, California"


Built: 1948

"The 'real' Trinidad head Lighthouse is a very small tower which sits high up on a headland along California's north coast. Built in 1871, it is still in operation today, but is off-limits to the public. The town of Trinidad built this replica in 1948 in a more accessible location to the public. It houses the original fourth-order lens removed from the 'real' lighthouse in 1947. The station's 1898 fog bell sits next to it."
