The Point San Luis Lighthouse was purchased from the Federal Government by the Port San Luis Harbor District in 1992.

Currently the Point San Luis Lighthouse Keepers continue to run the historic site, overseeing the maintenance and fundraising efforts which go towards the restoration and operation of the Lighthouse. Tours, events, and other efforts allow the non-profit to keep the historic site in good condition.
