Crescent City Lighthouse Wall Mural in Crescent City, California

On an islet 200 feet from Battery Point in Crescent City, California, stands a small, cape-cod style lighthouse that was commissioned in 1855. It was managed by one keeper for forty years before becoming automated in 1953. It stood firm during a major tsunami that resulted from the Alaskan 9.2 earthquake in 1964 but was decommissioned the following year. Today, the lighthouse is a museum that is only accessible during low tides. This navigational beauty is portrayed in a mural on a building wall in Crescent City.
