Marshfield Sun Printing Museum

Search Coos Bay Oregon

The Marshfield Sun is a throwback to the old days, when an ink-stained newspaper editor could write the story, edit it, set the type, and print the page. You can see the old press, which is still operational and look at vintage issues of the Sun.

The Marshfield Sun building is open by appointment during winter hours (just call ahead) and is open regular hours Tuesday to Saturday 1-4 in the summer.

Admission is free but donations accepted.

After a special election in 1944, the town of Marshfield changed its name to Coos Bay and the Marshfield Sun went out of business in the same year.
