The Old Point Loma Lighthouse was built in 1855, and stood watch over the San Diego Bay for 36 years. Although the lighthouse is no longer in use, the National Park Service maintains it as an illuminating beacon to our Nation's history and culture. This medallion is a replica of the survey mark placed on the corner of the building. Survey marks play an important role in mapping and navigation.
