EAST BROTHER ISLAND LIGHT STATION


East Brother is the oldest wood-frame lighthouse on the West Coast still fully operational and still in its historic configuration with functioning equipment. It was one of a group of twelve lighthouses similar but unique in design, built in California during the early 1870’s. At the time it was built, it provided both a light and roof signal to guide boats ferrying mail, passengers, and freight between San Francisco and various island ports.
