Yerba Buena - Goat Island - Lighthouse
Yerba Buena Island was formerly known as Goat Island for the goats that were pastured on the island in the Gold Rush days. The name was retired in 1931 when the Spanish name was restored.
In 1873 the Lighthouse Service moved the district’s depot from Mare Island to Yerba Buena. In 1875 construction was completed on the 25 foot tower with a fifth order Fresnel lens. The fifth-order lens was replaced in 1913 with a larger fourth-order lens that was originally manufactured in 1886. It was automated in 1958. Even the station is in very close proximity to the Golden Gate Bridge. The lighthouse remains operational. The keeper’s quarters are now the home of the Coast Guard District Commander.
It is an active aid to navigation and not open to the public.

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"
