Discover a Piece of History this Memorial Day in Cannon Beach

May 22nd, 2012 by Rachel Covault
History of Cannon Beach

Explore the long history of Cannon Beach this Memorial Day Weekend.

Memorial Day provides us with a time to reflect on the past and remember those who have come before us. If you find yourself on the Oregon Coast this weekend, take an afternoon to explore the past at the Cannon Beach History Center and Museum.

The center hosts several permanent and temporary exhibits related to Cannon Beach and its history. The Clatsop-Nehalem Confederated Tribes helped design a Native American longhouse, complete with replica artifacts created by regional Native American artisans. Another permanent exhibit, “Cannon Beach: A Place By the Sea,” describes the history of the area, from the time of the Tillamook Indians, through Lewis and Clark’s expedition, the logging boom, and two world wars, to the modern-day town with its significance in the arts and tourism.

The Memorial Day Weekend gives you the chance to see two temporary exhibits. If you’ve ever wondered how Cannon Beach got its name, the exhibit “Who Put The Cannon In Cannon Beach?” will put your questions to rest. Hear the troubled story of the USS Schooner Shark and how one of its cannons was lost and rediscovered — and how another two cannons lay buried in the tidal sands until only a few years ago. You can even see the original cannon on display.

A second temporary exhibit, “Beach Hop,” presents quilts from the Oregon Coast Shop Hop. Local artists and quilters created these quilts using panels from designated shops along the Oregon Coast. Themes of nostalgia and a love of Oregon are woven through this collection.

If you enjoy mixing modern context with your history lessons, take the historic walking tour of downtown Cannon Beach. Compare the town’s eighteenth-century landscape to today’s city. Much has changed in the last hundred years — but not everything.

The Cannon Beach History Center and Museum is open five days a week (closed Tuesdays and Wednesdays) fro 1 – 5pm, and admission is free.

Spring Unveiling Reveals New Fine Art Pieces in Cannon Beach

April 17th, 2012 by Rachel Covault
Cannon Beach on the Oregon Coast

Artists unveil their latest works in Cannon Beach during the Spring Unveiling.

Spring is a time of renewal and rebirth. In Cannon Beach, Oregon, spring is the time when new pieces of fine art make their world debuts.

The twelfth annual Spring Unveiling in Cannon Beach welcomes you to three days of celebrating the arts over the weekend of May 4 – 6, 2012. Come explore the town’s renowned art galleries, speak with the artists about their artistic ideas, and be the first to see their latest works.

Saturday will highlight the newest works of a variety of local, national, and international artists. About every half hour, an artist will “unveil” his or her newest works at one of the thirteen member galleries of the Cannon Beach Gallery Group. Painters, sculptors, photographers, jewelers, glass workers, and even a book artist will reveal and discuss their works. Read the rest of this entry »

Tufted Puffins Return to Haystack Rock at Cannon Beach

April 13th, 2012 by Rachel Covault
Tufted Puffin at Cannon Beach

Help us welcome back the tufted puffins during Cannon Beach's Twelve Days of Earth Day celebrations.

“Welcome back, puffins!”

So reads a handmade sign held by a flock of school children in front of Cannon Beach’s most prominent landmark, Haystack Rock, every April.

Haystack Rock is home to a colony of 200-300 tufted puffins during the summer months, where they congregate after many months on the open ocean to mate and raise chicks.

Their arrival is a sure sign of spring in Cannon Beach and is celebrated during the annual Twelve Days of Earth Day celebration.

During the event, April 11 – 22, 2012, volunteers with the Haystack Rock Awareness Program set up puffin-viewing stations on the beach with spotting scopes. They are also available to answer questions about the distinctive birds.

Tufted puffins are striking birds during the summer breeding season: each sports a thick, bright orange bill, a bright white face atop a jet-black body, and a pair of golden tufts curling from orange-rimmed eyes down the back of the neck. In the air, they fly purposefully with constantly flapping wings. Read the rest of this entry »

Arch Cape Inn and Retreat is in the process of changing its mission statement and daily living activities in order to become eligible for green certification. A particular emphasis for us focuses on protecting and preserving the water quality of our local area.
In an effort to keep our water clean, water that surrounds us everywhere, we are making  changes in our habits. One such change that is easy to do is to use ordinary vinegar in a spray bottle as a surface cleaning agent.
