Commissioned in 1896 to guide mariners across the dangerous bar at the mouth of the Coquille River
, the lighthouse now stands in Bullards Beach State Park
. It was decommissioned in 1939 following improvements to the river channel and other navigational aids.
It was restored in 1979 as an interpretive center. It is open year-round during daylight hours with tours to the tower watch room guided by park staff upon request. The lighthouse stands in a highly rated wildlife viewing area.
A web site has been established for the lighthouse restoration project.
