The Tillamook Rock Lighthouse, or "Terrible Tilly." Just over a mile off the coast near Ecola State Park.
One of the original crews became stranded on the rocks for two weeks while waiting for supplies during a massive Pacific northwest storm. Numerous people were killed during the construction and maintenance through the decades of operation:
Lighthouse keepers had a unique 42-days-on, 21-days off rotation due to the physical and psychological stress of living and working in such a turbulent location.
After being decommissioned, the building served as a columbarium for 19 years, but stopped accepting new urns in 1999.
So naturally, the place simply HAS to be super-haunted. I mean, just LOOK AT IT:
These days Tilly's home to a whole lot of sea lions, seagulls, and if you look closely, one badass bald eagle. At least, there was one holding down the remnants of the lens room like a boss last Saturday. Seriously - can you spot him in my video above? In a few shots, the seagulls gang up on him in a mid-air attack!
Have a wonderful week.
