'Situated at Yaquina, is an old deserted lighthouse. Its weather-beaten walls are wrapped in mystery. On an afternoon when the fog comes drifting in, it is the loneliest place in the world.'
So begins Lischen Miller's tale, 'The Haunted Lighthouse,' published in an 1899 issue of Pacific Monthly.
The Yaquina Bay Lighthouse, a charming two-story clapboard structure, is located on a hill overlooking the northern side of the entrance to Yaquina Bay. It was deserted a mere three years after its light was first lit in 1871, and ever since has been the scene for many a ghostly tale.
Today Yaquina Bay Light is in excellent condition and furnished with period pieces. If you take a tour, you will most likely hear a ghost tale or two.
