Oregon coastline - one lighthouse and an other-13   Oregon coastline - one lighthouse and an other-20

The Heceta Head Lighthouse and Light Keeper’s house are circa 1894. Both are listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

The lighthouse is a working lighthouse. From a height of 205 feet above the ocean, its “first order” Fresnel lens, casts it’s beams some 21 miles out to sea. It is the brightest light on the Oregon coast. It is said to be the most photographed lighthouse in the United States.

The Heceta Head Keeper’s House is perched on a cliff with a magnificent view of the Pacific Ocean and the beach below. Paths from the Keeper’s House lead both to the beach and to the lighthouse.

    • Well I hope you take the walk, it’s about 1 km from the parking place, unfortunately uphill, but if you are able to do it slowly it is a worth while trip.. I hope you feel well enough o do it some day. Take Care Cee!

    I am so amazed by the Fresnel lens since visited the lighthouse near Fort Bragg. Now, besides trying to ride all the historic trains, I want to see more lighthouses.
