Six lighthouses have sent beam into or out of San Diego. We’ll take a look at these six, see lots of photographs borrowed from adult children of San Diego’s light keepers, and tell a tale or two of life for lighthouse families living on Point Loma. Enjoy a peek at the recent restoration of San Diego’s operational lighthouse.
Join us on Wednesday, June 21, 2023 at 7 pm for our next “History Talks!” Lecture with Writer, Historian, and Educator Karen Scanlon.
Scanlon has written extensively on the maritime history of San Diego, particularly of the lower Point Loma Lighthouse. She and her twin, Kim, are volunteers at Cabrillo National Monument and care for the lens and lantern in the Old Point Loma Lighthouse. The two co-authored the book, Lighthouses of San Diego.
Lectures are free for GQHF Members, $5 for the public.
Limited seating. Zoom simulcast will also be available!
