Cape Meares Lighthouse


Cape Meares Lighthouse
Just west of Tillamook, Oregon is the Cape Meares Lighthouse. It was build in 1889 and named after Captain John Meares who was the first one to sail into Tillamook Bay.

If Tillamook, Oregon doesn't ring any bells...say "Cheese!"

It has the distinction of being the shortest lighthouse on the Oregon Coast. If you ever get to chance to visit, and see how far it is down to the water you will understand that it doesn't have to be real tall.
