Tillamook Rock Lighthouse

Clip | 9m 29s Video has closed captioning.

Tillamook Rock is home to the notorious "Terrible Tillie" lighthouse. Built in 1879, the lighthouse warned ships away from Tillamook Head for some 80 years before the storm-prone outpost proved too difficult to maintain. Today, it is a privately owned "columbarium" as well as a federally managed wildlife refuge.
