Fort Point Lighthouse
San Francisco

Information from the Pacific Coast Lighthouses Publication:
Fort Point - 1855-1864
The recent light, a small skeleton tower, was built in 1864.  A circular staircase leads up into the nine-sided lighthouse.  The original lighthouse and 5th order Fresnel lens was built in 1855.

For all the Alfred Hitchcock fans: a scene from the movie "Vertigo" was filmed here at Fort Point.
