The Cape Blanco lighthouse is located outside of Port Orford on the south Pacific coast of Oregon. The lighthouse started operation on December 20, 1870 using a first order Fresnel lens and an oil lamp. In 1936 electricity was brought to the lighthouse and in 1980 the lighthouse was automated. It is still in operation today acting as a navigation aid and warning shipping of the reefs that are off the coast of this part of Oregon.
