At each location, people aimed, focused, and clicked photos of this working lighthouse. It’s is no wonder that Heceta Lighthouse claims to be the “most photographed lighthouse” in Oregon. I know Ed and I shot at least a dozen digital photos, but who is counting?
The Heceta Lighthouse, built in 1894, is designated in the National Register of Historic Places. It functions as a working lighthouse with its powerful lens sending a beam 21-miles out to sea.
