Join the Point Arena Light Station’s Club 150!

The Point Arena Light Station #496 was officially established on September 30, 1869.  Construction of the first Tower was completed in April 1870. The light was first lit May 1, 1870. In 2022, May 1st marks 152 years of the Lighthouse lighting the way on the Mendocino coast.

We had planned several celebratory events in 2020 to mark this historic milestone, but sadly the COVID-19 pandemic forced the cancellation of them all.  Point Arena Lighthouse Keepers, Inc. (PALKI), the non-profit organization that owns, maintains and manages the Light Station, is proud to be the stewards of this icon of the coast.  To help fund the preservation of the Light Station for generations to come and to celebrate the first 150 years of the Light Station PALKI created Club 150.  For a $150 donation you can join Club 150 and receive the following:

  • Your name on a brass plaque mounted on the Club 150 redwood burl in the Buttress Room of the Lighthouse Tower
  • 150th Anniversary T-shirt   Sold out, so sorry!  We will include a different style of Point Arena Lighthouse T-shirt in your specified size
