Historic Oregon Coast Landmarks
||Coos Bay Home
The Oregon coast has a long history and many landmarks to mark the special events. I've yet to visit all of them, but I've been to quite a number of them and always found something interesting to be learned about each landmark. The wooden landmarks are made of cedar found in Port Orford. These markers not only mark Oregon's past but present possible aspects of Oregon's future. There are also a number of Heritage Trees which describe the vast timber industry. I hope you have the chance to visit some of these historical Oregon landmarks. There are many more inland but I'm concentrating my efforts to coastal Oregon.
No, this is just not another map of the Oregon coast, but rather an interactive map. I've recently been toying with the idea of making parts of the site accessible through image maps using the coordinates and placing the links inside the map. This is my first attempt at such a page, could and most likely will be my last depending upon the feedback you give to me about mapping coordinates and pages in general that use an image map. It's really just a visual display of showing you the same thing had I written it all out for you to see.
Just hold your mouse over the map and you'll see the links as you cross over the correct spot on the map. An alternative language tag should show up letting you know exactly where the link will take you. Areas marked with a red dot but not leading you to another page are Tsunami markers. The pages which I am linking to from the map are the ones that stood out most as I scoured my resources for historic places on the Oregon Coast. You can also use the navigation at the bottom of this page if you would prefer not to use the map.
