CANNON BEACH — There isn’t one part of Oregon’s rugged coastline that doesn’t have a story about a shipwreck, forced landing, or daring rescue. A popular waterway for centuries, the Oregon Coast has many shipwreck stories to share.

The Cannon Beach History Center and Museum opens their latest exhibit, “Shipwrecks of the Oregon Coast,” in May. The exhibit will feature artifacts, photos, stories, and information related to the Glenesslin, USS Shark, The Mimi, The Struan, The Gem, The Emily Reed, Peter Iredale, and even the latest archaeological work related to the “Beeswax Wreck Project.” The exhibit will be on display through September 2019. This exhibit was supported by the Kinsman Foundation and by Clatsop County.
