I am a member of the Lincoln County Historical Society and am prompted to post a simple explanation for the "40,000" artifacts negative review. Sometimes the cyber world zeros in on a few words of a sentence. The fact is that there are over 40,000 artifacts in the LCHS COLLECTION. Burrows House has a donation box instead of an admission fee to support the efforts of the Historical Society.

We did not get to go into this lighthouse because we arrived too early; but, I like it better than the Yaquina Lighthouse because it was not as touristy. It was not crowded, had a lovely view and garden at the lighthouse. The walk to the lighthouse along the beach or path was pleasant.

It was a Victorian home with pretty much nothing in it. It has 2 rooms to view. The ad says 40,000 artifacts, which is not true. It was by donation, so I was not out much money, but still, not worth your time.

If you haven't made time for this off the beaten path museum, you simply must. You will enjoy it greatly!

The museum included lots of wonderful displays in a very small home. Lots of great information and history provided. The volunteer was very knowledgeable.
