Point Fermin Light was built in 1874 with lumber from California redwoods. In 1941 the light was extinguished due to the bombing of Pearl Harbor. There was fear that the light would serve as a beacon for enemy planes and ships. The lantern room, including the original fourth order Fresnel lens and the gallery were removed in 1942. They were replaced by a lookout shack that remained for the next 30 years, and was referred to as "the chicken coop" by locals.
The lighthouse was saved from demolition in 1972 and refurbished in 1974. A wood replica lantern was installed in 1974 and a gallery was built by local preservationists.
The original Fresnel lens from the lighthouse, removed in the 1940s, had been missing for decades. After being found and positively identified, on November 13, 2006 the lens was relocated to a display in the restored lighthouse museum from the real estate office in Malibu, California where it had been on display.
In June 2011, the General Services Administration made the Point Fermin Light (along with 11 others) available at no cost to public organizations willing to preserve them.
In 1972, the light was added to the National Register of Historic Places.

Says one customer - "Comments .... The quality of the product I received was phenomenal and unexpected. For the price I paid, I expected a store-bought poster-quality print and received the equivalent of a 20" x 30" photograph. It ended up
making me feel bad about the relatively low-quality frame I had purchased for the print. Mike from IA"
