There are eleven lighthouses on the Oregon Coast and
nine of them are on the National Register of Historic Places.|
The Oregon Coast Visitors Guide recommends the lighthouses
highly. They have a lot of history attached to them, and
every single one is unique and special in its own way.
The stories about how they were built, what they became after they were
decommissioned, what life was like for the light keepers, and
so many more interesting topics associated with the Oregon
Coast lighthouses, make them very fascinating.
The lighthouses have incredible views of the ocean and surrounding
coast for obvious reasons. Many of them are also located
next to some of Oregon's premier wildlife viewing areas.
Visit some of these lighthouses and get up-close looks
at birds nesting, whales out in the ocean, and some of
Oregon's most beautiful scenery.
Explore the lighthouses on these pages and then go visit
them all. It will be a great experience.
