Umpqua Lighthouse, in the dunes

Umpqua Lighthouse, in the dunes

Dating from 1857, the original Umpqua Lighthouse here was the first on the Oregon coast. But it was built on the sand flats at the mouth of the river, was undermined by storms, and collapsed in 1864. A new light was completed in 1894 on this site, the furthest inland of any on the Pacific coast.

Umpqua River Lighthouse

Umpqua River Lighthouse

This is the second lighthouse built to mark the mouth of the Umpqua River, the first having been destroyed by waves and floodwaters. The new light was first lit in 1894, a prudent distance back from the shore and 165 feet above sea level. It contains a first order Fresnel lans that produces two white flashes followed by one red.
