Newport's other lighthouse - the Yaquina Bay Lighthouse
Virtual Tour of Newport, Oregon Coast

Newport's other lighthouse - the Yaquina Bay Lighthouse.

The Yaquina Bay lighthouse is dormant and was actually only used for about three years after it was built in the 1880's. You can tour the inside during most days of the week and check out the legends of hauntings by a young girl, which are the product of a piece of fiction published in the local paper at the turn-of-the-century.

Volunteers augment the experience by dressing up in period garb and giving you tours of the stately old home.

Staying true to form, the lighthouse here is lit in an eerie, ghost-like glow.
