This tells a story of people working to save sailors during shipwrecks. It is located on the beach and well worth a visit.

We were amazed at this area. Perfect for photographers. When you find the right angle...you can almost feel like you are out west in the desert. The drive to here is wonderful since its all a protected area.

Great spot to visit on the edge of Race Point Beach, but they're not always open. As you walk out to this old building, read the plaques you'll find along the boardwalk to learn about famous shipwrecks, how to look for whales rom this spot, and more, so worth a visit even if they're not open. Lack of federal funding may shorten their hours. Hope they still do the old-fashioned lifesaving demonstration on Thursday evenings. 6 PM? Free parking at Race Point beach by that time of Day.

This was a fun take that the kids will enjoy too. The little movies shed a little more like on the details of the time. The rangers at the station were great too.
