First Browns Point lighthouse, built in 1903
"The first Browns Point lighthouse was built in 1903 replacing a light on a pole that had been guiding boat traffic since 1887. Browns Point had already been called Point Brown before Oscar Brown became the first light keeper. It was and still is the only lighthouse in Pierce County."
