Situated above the water in close walking distance to the Port Waterfront District and Garibaldi City Center, the Historic Boathouse (also known as Pier’s End) is a freestanding building and walkway extending 760’ out into the bay on a series of over 100 individual pilings.
The building’s most significant historical value is its designation as an intact former United States Coast Guard Lifeboat Station. Plans for what is now called the Historic U.S. Coast Guard Boathouse were drawn in 1934. Construction began in 1936, and the marine railway became fully operational in June 1937. The structure could accommodate two 36-foot motor lifeboats (MLBs) and one 26-foot oar-powered surfboat, all individually served by rails which merged into one set of launching rails. This system allowed lifeboats to be rapidly launched fully manned.
This boathouse first served the Tillamook Bay Station located in Barview, and then continued after the move to Garibaldi in 1943. It was decommissioned in the early 1960s when the Coast Guard relocated to a new facility, and later the boathouse became property of the Port of Garibaldi.
With a concrete stairwell providing access to the shoreline and seven handicapped-accessible turnouts often utilized as platforms for fishing, crabbing and wildlife viewing, the historic pier is a popular recreational site in all seasons. A gravel parking lot services the site with portable restroom facilities and a trash receptacle.
The Historic Boathouse re-opened in summer 2018 with an art gallery and a series of innovatove events. The Gallery features local artists and a permanent exhibition sharing local stories of Tillamook Bay.
The boathouse itself is staffed by volunteers and open weekends, Memorial Day - Labor Day, as we continue the restoration and renovation process.Location: 1209 Bay Lane, Garibaldi, Oregon, 97118E: firstname.lastname@example.orgWebsite: www.savegaribaldipier.org
