Yaquina Head Light (Known places)

The Yaquina Head Light, also known early in its existence as the Cape Foulweather Lighthouse, is a lighthouse on the Oregon Coast of the United States. It is located in Lincoln County, near the mouth of the Yaquina River near Newport at Yaquina Head. The tower stands 93 feet (28.3 meters) tall, and is the tallest lighthouse in Oregon.

History

Built from 1871 (148 years ago) to 1873 (146 years ago), it was automated in 1966 (53 years ago) and is currently an active aid to navigation. Sometime after completion of the lighthouse a 2-storey keepers house was built. In 1922 (97 years ago) another keepers' house was built a short distance to the east of it and in 1938 (81 years ago) a smaller building replaced the first. These were demolished in 1984 (35 years ago). The space is now a grassy area.

It still uses its original Fresnel lens. In 1993 (26 years ago) it was listed in the National Register of Historic Places.

Film and TV location

The lighthouse was used as the setting for the "Moesko Island Lighthouse" in the 2002 (17 years ago) movie The Ring. It had already appeared in an earlier film, Hysterical (1983, 36 years ago), and The Nancy Drew Mysteries 1977 (42 years ago) TV series episode "The Mystery of Pirate's Cove".
