History on Tap: Stories of Point Pinos

Point Pinos is one of the most popular attractions in Pacific Grove, and like many local institutions, has a long and storied history to go along with it. While the rocky coast and rolling sand dunes at the southern entrance to Monterey Bay has long enchanted locals and visitors, the lighthouse and the land around the reserve has a long history and recently have been a source of scientific research and artistic expression. Visit the Museum in July for a talk that will highlight a beautiful and historically significant area in California. Learn about the pioneering scientific, technological, and artistic advancements that occurred on Point Pinos from the 1800s, through the Cold War, to today with the knowledgeable panel of David Laws, Bill Wolfe, and Geva Arcanin.

Learn about the pioneering scientific, technological, and artistic advancements that occurred on Point Pinos from the 1800s, through the Cold War to today. The speakers will focus on the Lighthouse and the former Navy/NOAA building.
