Oregon Coast Lighthouses
This Oregon weekend lets visit some fascinating places along the coast.
have been part of the Oregon coast since 1857, when the Umpqua River
house was first lit. Unfortunately due to poor planning and a bad
survey the structure collapsed from being battered by winter storms and
the pounding of the high seas.
Today there are eleven structures
still standing along the Oregon coast. They are as far north as
Tillamook Rock and as far south as Port of Brookings. Two of the
houses, Cleft of the Rock and Pelican Bay are privately owned and can
only be seen from a distance.
Several have been restored and a
visit to them is like a visit to the past. Click on any in the list
below to get information on a particular location.
