Heceta Head Lighthouse, built in 1894 and named for Spanish explorer, Bruno de Heceta,, is considered the strongest lighthouse on the Oregon coast (USA). It is just north of the sea lion caves, about 13 miles north of Florence. Atop a 205 foot headland, it is at a cove at the mouth of Cape Creek.
Keepers quarters are rumored to be haunted by the ghost of an elderly woman, nicknamed, Rue. There have been several incidents involving moved objects and apparitions generally seen from the outside into the attic.
