Cottage Tour

Cannon Beach History Center & Museum Fundraiser

The Cannon Beach History Center and Museum’s Cottage and Garden Tour are on!
This beloved three-day event will take place the weekend of September 9th. Tickets go on sale on July 1!
We are coming back live and in person this year, with more homes and gardens featured than ever!

The Cottage Tour is Cannon Beach History Center & Museum’s annual fundraiser, bringing in 20% of our annual income. Our small-town museum is home to over 12,000 photos, thousands of historical documents, artifacts, and permanent and temporary exhibits related to the Tillamook Rock Lighthouse, Cannon Beach and Arch Cape, shipwrecks, and more. The museum is also home to the cannon that Cannon Beach is named for! The tour has received numerous accolades in Oregon Home Magazine, Sunset Magazine, The Oregonian, and the Seattle Times, among others. In 2016, Sunset Magazine called it the “best autumn event in Cannon Beach.” In 2019, we had over 700 attendees and anticipate exceeding that number in 2022 as we return live and in-person!

To keep up-to-date with all of the Cannon Beach and Arch Cape history happenings, follow us on Facebook or Instagram.
