Coquille River Lighthouse
As commercial shipments became popular in the 1880’s a jetty was built to deepen the mouth of the Coquille River. The next step was building the Coquille River Lighthouse. The lighthouse was first lit in February of 1896.

In 1939, the US Coast Guard took over, deemed the lighthouse unnecessary, and instead placed an automated beacon on the south jetty to aid in navigation. The lighthouse was abandoned until Bullards Beach State Park acquired it. It was restored and opened to the public in 1979.
