The year that Pachena light was build, its state-of-the-art dioptric lens was featured as an illustration in the Encyclopedia Britannica. When first lit on May 21, 1908, the four million candle power beam was visible at Tatoosh, Washington, 35 miles away and was hailed as the brightest light on the coast.

In 1925 Pachena became the command center for lifesaving services along the West Coast or "graveyard of the Pacific" as it was often termed. The octagonal wooden tower still stands and the West Coast Lifesaving Trail is now a national wilderness park which hosts over 6,000 visitors yearly.
