Oregon Coast Lighthouses Oregon's surviving coastal lighthouses serve as visible, accessible links to the past - monuments to Oregon's maritime heritage.

Aided by interpretive displays, historical accounts and a little imagination, you can now gain some insight about what life was like for the light keepers who lit the way for mariners off Oregon's perilous coastline.

Climb to the lantern or tower watch rooms at some of the locations and experience the panoramic sights once enjoyed by the light keepers. Hear the sounds of the seabirds and the wind that accompanied their isolation.
