I wonder if there are any plans to replace the lantern room?

Couldnt find anything specific ... here's the
"vision" of The Bureau of Land Management"

“Manage and restore the Piedras Blancas Light Station to a period
in its history when the site played a significant role in the protection
of central California maritime ac-tivities. In addition, preserve and
protect the natural, his-torical, and cultural resources of the site
while providing opportunities for compatible scientific, cultural, social,
and interpretive activities for the benefit of present and future generations”.

Completion by 2018

You never know. A brand new (replica) lantern room was put on Admiralty Head last year.

It has plexi-glass windows, and the ball vent is obviously a non-working model, but the place looks like a million bucks.

Perhaps the same thing is in the works for Piedras Blancas.

The last time I climbed Piedras Blancas, the gentlemen who gave our tour was with the BLM. He stated that their long term goal was to restore the lantern. I will state that this conversation took place about 3 years ago.
