Historic Lighthouses on the Oregon Coast

April 10, 2010 (Updated October 21, 2016)

There are 11 historic lighthouses that dot the edge of the Oregon Coast, from Cannon Beach to Port Orford. A visual representation of the region’s history, each has a unique story to tell.

Their beams still shine today down the 360-mile stretch of coastline, now with halogen bulbs rather than kerosene lamps. Here we give you a glimpse of these iconic beacons, but to really see their splendor hop on the Pacific Coast Scenic Byway (Hwy. 101) and visit the towns, communities and rocky bluffs surrounding these historic structures.

For more information on lighthouses, please visit Oregon Coast Visitors Association.
