Tillamook Rock Light House, Oregon - Terrible Tilly
Tillamook Rock Light is a deactivated lighthouse on the Oregon Coast near Cannon Beach. The light was officially lit on January 21, 1881. At the time, it was the most expensive West Coast lighthouse ever built. Due to the erratic weather conditions, and the dangerous commute for both keepers and suppliers (you can look at this picture and see why!), the lighthouse was nicknamed "Terrible Tilly" (or Tillie). Over the years, storms have damaged the lighthouse, shattered the lens, and eroded the rock.
It was decommissioned in 1957 and sold to private owners.
