Your visit to this tiny but jam-packed-with-info building can take 10 minutes or 2 hours. History of Cannon Beach, its cannon, its native American history, and its political history. But what captured my interest most was the display on its geological history explaining the formation of Haystack rock and the Needles! I also loved the historical photos of the area of 1930s beach houses, visits by presidents, flood damage, and highway construction! This gem can be hard to find so use your GPS if necessary. When done here, drive through the little neighborhood adjoining the parking lot to absorb some off-the-beaten-track charm of the houses where full time residents live.
