Overview


Oregon Territory's first lighthouse was built on the Umpqua River in 1857 to guide ships engaged in the growing coastal trade between California and the Pacific Northwest. These absorbing stories tell of the fascinating history of 14 lighthouse that served the Oregon Coast and lower Columbia River, and Columbia River Lightship station and the lighthouse tenders that served them - all woven into the rich maritime lore of the Beaver State.

This guide is packed with maps, photographs and useful information, including visitors' hours and descriptions of those lighthouses and nearby museums, which are open to the public.
