Lighthouse of the Week, May 1-7, 2016: Pachena Point, BC, CA

This week's lighthouse, Pachena Point, is another one of those lighthouses situated in a casually magnificent location on the Pacific Coast of North America.

Here's more information about it:

Pachena Point, BC

"The lighthouse, an octagonal wooden tower with sloping sides, was built to a height of thirty-eight feet nine inches high from its base to the lantern deck. In addition to the lighthouse, a double dwelling was also constructed along with a square fog alarm building. John S. Richardson, Pachena’s first lightkeeper, lit a temporary life-saving beam, in the form of a lantern on a gas tank, on September 1, 1907."

It was being restored in 2015 and according to the very up-to-date Lighthouse Friends Web site, the scaffolding came down in April 2016.
