Well, it’s actually a lighthouse, but even through two different names it’s never been called a lighthouse.
We gave you a peek through old pilings yesterday. Today, we gaze at the Coquille River Light across a bit of flooded area and the Coquille River, just short of where the river empties into the Pacific.
This edifice was originally called Bandon Light. It operated for about 45 years, but was decommissioned in 1939. Restoration has occurred in various stages since 1976.
