The Heceta Head
Lighthouse is located 11 miles north of Florence, Oregon at the Devil's
Elbow State Park. The lighthouse and light keeper houses were
built in the 1890's. Because there were no roads in the area, all
men and material had to be brought into the cove by ship.
Once in the cove the material had to be moved to the lighthouse or
light keeper house site. The location where the lighthouse sits
had to be blasted to provide level ground. To reach the
lighthouse and light keeper house requires a walk along a trail the
ascends some 200 feet from the cove. The trail is classified as
'gentle slope', but I leave it to you whether it is gentle or
not. This picture of the remaining light
keeper house as seen from the cove.
