The Piedras Blancas Light Station Association is offering the public a chance to step back in time at a fundraising tour event at the old lighthouse keeper’s cottage.

Principle keepers under the lighthouse service and officers in charge during the Coast Guard years occupied the cottage, built in 1905 beside the lighthouse, which was completed in 1875.

The cottage was moved to Cambria in 1960 and now sits on Moonstone Beach Drive, just north of Weymouth Street. A raffle to win a two-night stay at the cottage will be offered as part of the tour event.

Guides and enactors will dress in period attire for tours beginning at 1, 1:30, 2, 2:30 and 3 p.m. Sunday, June 2. Required reservations can be made at 927-3719. Tours cost $15.
