Visitor Information

The peninsula was originally known as La Punta de California (the Point of California) until the first land expedition renamed it "La Loma de San Diego" in 1769. In 1782, "La Punta de la Loma" was recorded on a map, and eventually the lengthy name was shortened to Point Loma.

In 1852, the Fort at Ballast Point was built on the peninsula and renamed Fort Rosecrans in 1899, after Civil War Gen. William S. Rosecrans. Today, the military still maintains a presence in Point Loma, including SPAWAR, a submarine base, and naval and Coast Guard rescue facilities.
