The Lookout Observatory & Gift Shop

WHERE OREGON'S HISTORY BEGAN!

The Lookout is perched atop this promontory rising 500 feet above sea level and from its windows can be seen the crashing surf along the shore, sea birds nesting on the rocks, sea lion basking in the sun, fleets of fishing boats in search of salmon, pods of whales, unbelievable sunsets and the peaceful calm that follows the violence of a storm.

Inside the shop are many things of interest to see besides the stock of myrtlewood, coral, shells, collectibles and other unique gift ideas for family and friends at home.

Also on display in the Lookout is the large ships wheel from the Minnie Kelton, wrecked off shore in 1909.

A small part of a collection of 150 driftwood characters created by Captain Harvey are also on display.

We welcome our folks from other states and across the sea. We hope your travels will bring you along our lovely Oregon Coast many, many times!

We are located west of Cape Foulweather viewpoint, on Highway 101 between mile marker 131 and 132.
