2021—The Tallest Head Light

The Yaquina Head Light is the tallest of the eleven lighthouse on the Oregon Coast at a soaring 93 feet tall, more than 30 feet taller than the next tallest, the Tillamook Rock Lighthouse that stands 62 feet tall. Completed in 1873, the Yaquina Head Light is also the oldest functioning lighthouse with its light now converted to a fully automated Fresnel lens that operates its unique light signal pattern (2 seconds on, 2 seconds off, 2 seconds on, 14 seconds off) 24 hours a day.
