Tonight I decided to see the sunset downtown. I had forgotten that the lighthouse has a light in it. It is not a beacon but does show the original glass lens.
According to the Trinidad Civic Club: On December 31, 1914, the lighthouse was struck by the highest wave to ever strike the West Coast. The wave extinguished the light 196’ above sea level. The light was returned to service in 4 hours by Light keeper F.L. Harrington, keeper 1888-1916.
The photo is of a replica light house that houses the original Fresnel lens that was replaced by an electric beacon in 1947.
