Yerba Buena Island Light

"San Francisco, California"


Built: 1875
Automated: 1958

"This 25 foot tall octagonal wood tower stands on a 50 foot cliff on the southeast corner of the island, which was once known as Goat Island. A fog signal building sits just below the tower and the two-story keeper's residence stands above, about 80 yards away. Today, the keeper's dwelling is the home of the Coast Guard Admiral in charge of all Pacific operations. Not far from the site is the Bay area's lighthouse depot."
