California's St. George Reef Lighthouse
Digital Art - Oil
The St. George Reef Lighthouse is barely visible from the shore of California's Crescent City. This abandoned lighthouse is six miles off the coast incredibly difficult to get to and was completed in 1891 and was referred to as a wave washed lighthouse because the ocean waves hit the structure from all sides. Technology made many of these historic lighthouses obsolete. It took almost a decade to build at a cost then of $700,000 and was the most expensive lighthouse ever built in the U.S. The stone column of the lighthouse was built so as to become a seamless wall to endure the pounding waves of the Pacific.
