Coquille River Lighthouse
Also known as the Bandon Light, it became 100 years old in 1996. In days gone by it guided vessels
as they sailed in and out of Bandon. Today summer volunteers man the lighthouse giving out information
and taking you to the top of the lantern tower.
The lighthouse is located at Bullard's Beach State Park one mile north of Bandon on Highway 101.
Cape Blanco Lighthouse
Two hundred and forty-five feet above the sea, on a wind swept bluff, sits the Cape Blanco Lighthouse.
Isolated and remote, the lighthouse is Oregon's most westerly, highest above the sea at 245 feet and
Oregon's oldest, continuously operating light. Cape Blanco overlooks some of the most dangerous waters
in America. Countless vessels and many lives have been lost along this treacherous stretch of rocky coast.
Oregon's first official woman lighthouse keeper, Mable E. Bretherton signed on in 1903.
