“circa 1870!”

This isolated lighthouse holds at least four Oregon records: it is the oldest continuously operating light, the most westerly, it has the highest focal plane above the sea, (256 feet), and Oregon'��s first woman keeper, Mabel E. Bretherton signed on in March 1903.

Gorgeous setting and amazing to be able to walk all the way up to the top where the actual light is in this lighthouse. The tour is only $2 for adults and the volunteer guides were helpful and informative. We did have to wait quite a while for our tun to go up to the top (they only allow 5 people up there at a time), but it was worth the wait. Amazing to see the light and lens up close! Not what I was expecting at all! Beautiful!

Has some pretty cool views from the parking lot. The path to the lighthouse was closed that day so I don't know if it's a decent experience. The wind was extremely strong. Watch your footing. The five mile drive from the highway was nice.
