In 1852 German immigrant Augustus W. Timms obtained Sepulveda's landing on the
mudflats near here. He built a wharf, added a warehouse, corral and other facilities to service
shipping and the running of stages to Los Angeles. Timms was a pioneer in the development of the
harbor and for over fifty years this area was known as Timms Point.
