Monterey Cypress – Heritage Tree

Harrison G. Blake planted this tree, now the largest Monterey Cypress found in Oregon, when he built his house here in the 1850’s. Blake was the first member of the Oregon House of Representatives from Southern Curry County in 1874 and served as postmaster of the Chetco Post Office. The Blake house is the oldest in Chetco Valley and was once a stagecoach station and site of the post office.

Located four miles south of Brookings at Chetco Valley Museum on Hwy 101
