Fort Point Light Station sits on top of 'Fort Point'. Fort Point was the line of defense into the San Francisco Bay. At the base of The Presidio, It is now a museum. The Golden Gate Bridge was built over the Fort.

Comments :
The East Coast has their fortresses, we have ours. What nostalgia for a bygone era. Must see for all ages. Great viewing under the Golden Gate bridge.
