Take a Free Tour of Heceta Head Lighthouse this September
The Heceta Lighthouse Interpretive Center at the Keepers' Home is extending its tour season to include weekends in September. The keeper's home will be open to the public 11-3 on Saturdays and Sundays in September. There will be no tours available on September 15 and 29 due to the home being rented for wedding services.
Previously, tours were only available Memorial Weekend through Labor Day, but due to the popularity of viewing the interior of the 124 year old assistant light keepers' home and hearing the history from volunteer docents, management has decided to extend the season.
Tours are free, but donations are gratefully accepted. All funds raised by the Heceta Lighthouse Interpretive Center at the Keepers' Home go towards the restoration of the home and the interpretive program. The current goal is to raise enough money to build the wings that originally existed on the north side of the duplex, making the building handicap accessible and providing a guest room and bathroom on the first floor with a view of the lighthouse.
