Other Lighthouse Information:
The Pelican Bay lighthouse is one of the newest in the United States and the second private lighthouse in Oregon. Bill Cady wanted to add a lighthouse to his home. He moved his home to its current location, perched on the corner of a 100 foot cliff, in 1997. The lighthouse was added and the tower is 141 feet above the Pacific Ocean. The Coast Guard commissioned the lighthouse as a private aid to navigation on June 24, 1999 and it was first lit on July 4, 1999. The lamp is a fixed acrylic Fresnel lens and turns on at dusk and off at dawn and can be seen 11 miles away. The $3,000 clear lens runs on 110 alternating current. Inside there are four 12 volt lamps each with a life of 3,000 hours. If one light burns out, the bulb is automatically replaced with the next one by means of a built-in changer. The Coast Guard Station is nearby. You can see California's St. George Reef lighthouse far off shore to the southwest.

The Lighthouse Hunters Experience:
We came to this area three times and only the first time we had sun, the rest we had clouds and a threat of rain. We stood on the street or in the lower parking lot to take our pictures.
