Winchester Bay Wayfinding Point
US 101 Douglas County, Oregon
Winchester Buy is the Oregon coast's first "Wayfinding Point" on US Highway 101. Here, the area west of the highway was opened up to provide a view of the ocean, a coastal lake and a historic lighthouse. Interpretive panels display valuable information about the scenic, cultural and community attractions within a 80km (50 mile) radius. These displays are developed in cooperation with local communities which depend upon the traveling public for their economic livelihood.
