The Oregon Department of Transportation awarded a $1,357,366 contract to Pioneer Waterproofing Company of Portland, Ore., for a restoration project at the historic Heceta Head Lighthouse in Yachats, Ore.
At 205 feet above sea level, the working lighthouse is reported to offer one of the strongest lights on the Oregon coast. It was named after the Spanish sailor Don Bruno de Heceta, who discovered the location in the mid-1700s.
The Heceta Head Lighthouse is managed by the Oregon State Parks Department.
Both the lighthouse and Light Keeper’s House were constructed circa 1894 and both are listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The house offers bed and breakfast rentals and facilities for events. In addition, guided tours of the lighthouse and grounds are provided to the public.
