Camp Cast-A-Way

First white settlement in what is now
Coos County

On the beach west of here the U.S. Transport Captain Lincoln was beached at high tide during a storm. The soldiers and crew built a camp from the sails under the trees across the bay from this spot and made a flag pole from a mast from which Old Glory first flew in this locality. All lives, provisions and army supplies were saved. They camped here until midsummer.
