Restoring signal lens at coastal lighthouse Point Arena group is working to repair it Special for the Journal For more than 20 years, the 1st order Fresnel (pronounced with a silent "s") lens at the top of the Point Arena Lighthouse has remained dark, says information from the non-profit Point Arena Lighthouse Keepers. The awe inspiring 18-mile beam, with an unique light signature of two flashes every six seconds, was taken out of service in the late 1970s, and sadly replaced with a modern rotating beacon by the U.S. Coast Guard, says information from the preservation group. The new light was efficiently mounted on the exterior balcony of the tower, and with this "upgrade," the fate of the Fresnel lens was sealed. The Fresnel lens was decommissioned due to the fact that the lighthouse was no longer needed as a navigational aid, thus there was no logical reason to maintain the six-ton optic. But now, two decades later, with a greater local appreciation for historic preservation, the re-lighting the Point Arena Lighthouse is commencing!

It was this auxiliary unit that was instrumental in the success of restoring Point Cabrillo and clearly demonstrates that with some hard work, a small group of people can move mountains, says the group's information. On Saturday at 3:30 pm at the Point Arena Lighthouse, Eich and his auxiliary team will be sharing their restoration experiences, and will be attempting to form a dedicated team called a detachment, from the surrounding area. This detachment of key individuals will be created for the sole purpose of restoring and maintaining Point Arena's stately tower.
