Fort Point and Lime Point define respectively the southern and northern flanks of the narrow entrance to San Francisco Bay. Given its prime location, Fort Point has been a desired spot for several construction projects over the years. First was a cottage-style lighthouse to mark the entrance. Next was a fort positioned to protect the entrance, and finally came the graceful Golden Gate Bridge to span the entrance. Evidence of the three projects is still visible on the point today. A tiny lighthouse sits perched atop the massive brick fort, which is overarched by the towering bridge.
