Shore Whaling and Shipwrecks (Pigeon Point Dinning Hall)
Park: Pigeon Point Light Station SHP
Sail back into history to explore “shore whaling and shipwrecks” in this talk with maritime author and historian JoAnn Semones. Discover the whaling station, shipping center, Chinese fishing village, and dog-hole port that were part of the area before the lighthouse was built. From Portuguese whalers to Gold Rush dreamers, the 1850s and 1860s were a pivotal time for this rocky point on the San Mateo coast. Starts at 1pm.
