Walton Lighthouse

In Fall 2001, a second lighthouse was built in Santa Cruz. The Walton Lighthouse (or Santa Cruz Harbor Light) was built on the West Jetty of Santa Cruz Harbor. The tower houses a modern green optic 54 feet above sea level. The light was dedicated on June 9, 2002. The light received its name from one of its patrons - Charles Walton - who donated $60,000 for the project in memory of his brother Derek of the Merchant Marines.
