Publisher Comments:

On the central Oregon coast lies a sliver of land bounded on the north by the Salmon River and on the south by Depoe Bay, with Devils Lake at its heart. Creeks and rivers wind their way across this coastal plain, down from the mountains, through stands of towering spruce trees, and empty into the sea. This little bit of paradise remained as nature shaped it for many thousands of years of Native American habitation. In the late 1890s, rugged individuals began to find their way into the more hospitable corners of this windswept coast. In time, a string of small towns and cities appeared, stretched like a string of pearls along the beach between the mountains and the sea. These towns grew and overlapped until five combined to become Lincoln City. By the 1950s, the area had become a tourist mecca so beautiful it was known as the Twenty Miracle Miles.

About the Author

The vintage photographs in this volume tell the history of north Lincoln County, from its earliest settlement and development, through its incorporation as Lincoln City, to its incarnation as a tourist destination. The words of Anne Jobbe Hall, the director and curator of the North Lincoln County Historical Museum, provide the history behind these rare images, which she selected from the museum's collections.
