Known as one of the most passionate supporters of the Kelley House in Mendocino, Martha Davis Wagner is
remembered as a tireless gardener and writer. A generous donation by
her trust to the Point Cabrillo Lightkeepers Association exemplifies her
fervor in sustaining its efforts in restoration, maintenance, and
interpretation of the cultural and natural resources of Point Cabrillo
Light Station State Historic Park.
We, and future generations, thank Martha Davis Wagner for her dedication to the history of the Mendocino Coast.
