The Santa Monica Pier opened Sept. 9, 1909, it was the first concrete pier on the West Coast of the United States when built, according to santamonicapier.org
“The pier became an instant favorite among the fishing community,” the pier’s website reads. “Men and women, whether young, old, rich or poor, enjoyed the ample supply of fish and simple pleasure of dropping a line and waiting for a bit…”
The pier collapsed in 1919 as the concreted piles had begun to rust through. After an almost two-year process of replacing the rusted through concreted with creosote-treated wooden piles, the pier was open again.
Today, the pier is operated by Pacific Park and hosts over 9 million guests per year.
