Lighthouse at junction of the Columbia and the Willamette Rivers.
Lighthouse at junction of the Columbia and the Willamette Rivers.
TitleLighthouse at junction of the Columbia and the Willamette Rivers.
DescriptionA tinted photographic postcard. The legend in red at upper left reads "Lighthouse at junction of the Columbia and the Willamette Rivers." The lighthouse, which stands in the middle of the water, is a wooden structure with a metal roof. The wooden pilings and beams supporting the living quarters are built in a square, but the building itself is octagonal. On the lowest level is a fenced deck surrounding the building; the level above that features four tall gable windows, one looking to each of the four directions. At the top is a fenced widow's walk. On the left side of the building can be seen a lantern and a tall pole, perhaps a lightening rod. On the shore beyond the lighthouse are trees. The lighthouse was built near Kelly Point in 1895. In 1935 the lighthouse was electrified and no longer needed keepers to light the lantern or ring the fog bell. It was sold and moved during the 1940s and burned during the 1950s.
