Pigeon Point Light Station or Pigeon Point Lighthouse is a lighthouse built in 1871 to guide ships on the Pacific coast of California. It is the tallest lighthouse on the West Coast of the United States. It is still an active Coast Guard aid to navigation. Pigeon Point Light Station is located on the coastal highway, 5 miles south of Pescadero, California, between Santa Cruz and San Francisco. The 115-foot, white masonry tower, resembles the typical New England structure. Because of its location and ready access from the main highway, Pigeon Point entertains a large number of public visitors.
The lighthouse and the land around have been preserved as Pigeon Point Light Station State Historic Park, a California state park. The lighthouse is also listed on the National Register of Historic Places, and designated as a California Historical Landmark.The Pigeon Point Lighthouse is also a logo of E. W. Scripps Company.
The tower has been closed to visitors since 2001, but there is a hostel in the former lighthouse keepers' house and free history walks are available on weekends.
