Fort Point Life-Saving StationActivated in 1890, this U.S. Life-Saving Station was built to aid endangered seafarers in the days when San Francisco was one of the world's busiest ports. "Surfmen" braved wind and waves to rescue victims from distressed sailing ships and steamships off the central California coast and in the bay's treacherous waters. Nearly a dozen shipwrecks still lie buried along the Presidio shore.
