When Stearns Wharf was completed in 1872, it became the longest deep-water wharf between San Pedro and San Francisco. Named for its builder, local lumberman John P. Stearns, the wharf served the passenger and freight shipping needs of California’s south coast for more than a century. For more information, visit www.stearnswharf.org.
