Victorian Days Walking Tour
Park: Pigeon Point Light Station SHP
Sunday, July 27, 2014 at 1 pm
Travel back to the days of the Maritime West on a docent-led tour of the historic grounds of Pigeon Point Light Station. Meet at the flagpole. Hear tales of the many shipwrecks, the building of the lighthouse, the “Wickies” and their families, and the anticipated restoration of the tower (currently closed to the public). Visit the Fog Signal Building to view the magnificent First Order Fresnel lens and explore the exhibits. Local maritime historian JoAnn Semones, author of Shipwrecks, Scalawags, and Scavengers: The Storied Waters of Pigeon Point will also be there to sign copies of her book. Proceeds support the Coastside State Parks Association. For directions, go to www.parks.ca.gov/pigeonpoint. This presentation is coordinated with the San Mateo County Historical Association for its 2014 Victorian Days Walking Tours.
