cTv, Point Arena Lighthouse Saving Lives at Sea

Numerous shipwrecks occurred one-half mile offshore due to a sneaky reef 6 feet under the water. The Point Arena lighthouse was damaged by the 1906 San Francisco earthquake, rebuilt to 115 feet tall and was renovated for its 100th anniversary. The prize 12,000 pound 6 foot tall freznel lens features a unique triple set of double bullseye lens, valued at over $3,500,000 dollars. The beam proudly shot out 20+ miles while the new double 1,000 watt LEDs are limited to one short burst every 15 seconds at a more meger 16 miles.
