A Lightkeeper’s Tools

A kerosene lamp an a pair of spectacles sit on a table of the workroom at the Yaquina Head Lighthouse. The lighthouse, constructed in 1872, stands 93 feet tall and is built on a narrow promontory of land sitting nearly a mile out into the Pacific Ocean. It is Oregon's tallest lighthouse. The oil-burning lamp has been replaced with this 1000-watt globe at the Yaquina Head Lighthouse but the light still shines every night to alert mariners to this hazardous stretch of coastline.
