Pigeon Point Light Station, located on the rugged California coast near Pescadero, stands as one of the tallest lighthouses in the United States. Built in 1871, this historic lighthouse was named after the ship "Carrier Pigeon" that wrecked nearby in 1853. The 115-foot (35 m) tall tower is a striking and picturesque landmark, known for its classic, elegant design and its role in ensuring the safety of ships navigating the perilous waters off the California coast.

Constructed to guide ships safely through the fog and hazardous rocks along this stretch of the Pacific Ocean, Pigeon Point Light Station is equipped with a Fresnel lens, a marvel of 19th-century technology that greatly amplified the light's visibility. Although the original lens is no longer in operation, it is on display near the base of the tower, and a modern beacon continues to serve the maritime community.

The lighthouse and the surrounding buildings, once home to the lighthouse keepers and their families, are now part of a state historic park. The site offers breathtaking views of the Pacific Ocean and is a popular spot for whale watching, birding, and photography. The area around Pigeon Point is also known for its rich marine life, including tide pools teeming with sea creatures.

Pigeon Point Light Station not only serves as a reminder of California's maritime history but also as a serene and scenic destination for visitors. The lighthouse's iconic silhouette against the backdrop of the Pacific Ocean makes it a cherished landmark along the California coast. The site is managed by the California State Parks and is accessible to the public, offering a unique glimpse into the life and work of lighthouse keepers in the late 19th and early 20th centuries.
