Virtually all of the North Point District on the city's coastal bight is on the National Register of Historic Places. This longtime exclusive community lies west of North Lincoln Memorial Drive and south of East Park Place to East Woodstock Place.
East of here along the lakefront is Lake Park, designed by Frederick Law Olmsted, planner of New York City’s Central Park and San Francisco’s Golden Gate Park. Prehistoric Native American burial mounds are here. At the top of North Avenue is the North Point Lighthouse, a Victorian Gothic structure dating from the 1870s and one of the few extant water towers like it in the United States.
