AÑO NUEVO NEWS THROUGH TIME


In the News~

May 15, 1958 [Sacramento Bee]: “Año Nuevo Isle Is Bought By State For Park. San Francisco—The state has bought Año Nuevo Island off the San Mateo County coast from the federal government for $51,094. Ten years ago, the state could have purchased the island for $18,094. The rocky nine acre lighthouse station has been sought for a state park ever since it was abandoned by the coast guard in 1928. The state park commission had intended to buy Año Nuevo but never completed the deal. The island was put up for auction by the federal government early this year. Frank Spangler of Berkeley bid $100,000 for Año Nuevo which he intended to turn into a fisherman's paradise. However, the law said the state still could buy the island at half the market value plus the costs of the auction. The park commission decided to acquire it.”
