From the inspection report: "Step back in time and learn the history of Cannon Beach and the surrounding area from how and when the town was established, early mail delivery, being "blacked out" during World War II for fear of invasion, the tsunami of 1964 and the fight to make all of Oregon's beaches public. There is a small Native American Longhouse in which kids can play and pretend."
