Yaquina Head Lighthouse

Item Sku: MVYH

Located 3 miles north of Newport, Yaquina Head Lighthouse is one of the most beautiful lighthouses in America. After its completion, the light was first lit on August 20, 1873. At that time the tall majestic tower stood alongside the keeper's two story dwelling, a barn and outbuildings. The first keeper, Fayette Crosby, served here for two years before beginning service at the Umpqua River Lighthouse in 1857. The lighthouse was automated in 1966, ending the era of station attendants.
