Yaquina Head Lighthouse - Oregon
The flashing beacon of light guiding fishermen away from the perilous shoreline was first lit on August 20th, 1873, but it was not built without controversy. Two boats perished as they tried to deliver supplies during the construction of the lighthouse. Some people say the lighthouses along the coastline are haunted, while others dispute the urban legend.
