A trip down the Oregon Coast’s Highway 101 isn’t complete without stopping to view its historic lighthouses.

Lighthouses served as the beacons and navigation aids for mariners of all types — big commercial cargo ships to small fishing boats — marking dangerous coastlines, shoals and boat-crunching reefs. Before the days of GPS navigation, captains near the shores relied on lighthouses to know where they were geographically.
