Fort Point

Fort Point

in 1864, A new lighthouse tower was built atop the fort standing 27' tall. The tower remained in use for about seventy years until the construction of the Golden Gate Bridge was started. The bridge towers standing 740' tall complete with lights became a "lighthouse" that mariners could spot from miles out to sea. This made the much smaller Fort Point light redundant and it was discontinued in 1934...
