Coquille River Lighthouse, Bandon #547

Coquille River Lighthouse, Bandon, Oregon - beach, lighthouse, bandon, oregon coast artwork by Emily Miller
The Coquille River Lighthouse is located in Bandon on the southern coast of Oregon. It was built in 1896 to guide merchant timber ships past the dangerous sandbar at the mouth of the Coquille River. The lighthouse has a unique design with a cylindrical tower attached to an octagonal main room.

After 43 years of service, the lighthouse was deactivated in 1939. The last head lighthouse keeper, Oscar Langlois, served at Coquille River Light for 29 years. He was born at Cape Blanco Light and married Marie Amundsen, daughter of the keeper at Cape Arago Light, where he was stationed from 1905-1910.

Coquille River Light was abandoned to the elements for 24 years before being restored as part of Bullards Beach State Park and reopened to the public in 1979.
