Dofflemeyer Point Lighthouse – Olympia WA

Description

“This light and fog-signal tower is typical of many of the smaller structures which have been erected on the coast line and rivers of the United States. The tower and housing for the equipment operating the fog horn is of reinforced concrete, approximately 15 by 15 feet at the base, and 35 feet high. It is surmounted by a lantern. This project was completed in March 1935 and the P.W.A allotment with which it was built included the electrification of other light towers and amounted to $13,500.”
