Myrtle Point

Tribal and Timber History in a Heritage Rich Town

by Manuela Durson

A short drive from the Pacific in the foothills of the Coastal Mountains, Myrtle Point offers small town charm and outdoor opportunities aplenty.

Myrtle Point takes its name from the myrtle trees that grow along the Coquille River. Once a seasonal hunting and fishing village for the Coquille tribe, the town was settled in the 1860’s and called Ott and Myersville before the current name was landed. Today hunting, fishing and every type of outdoor activity can be found, especially boating along Coquille River Water Trail, just south of town. The historic downtown features heritage homes and buildings owing to its timber heritage. Time your visit for the Coos Fun Fair or stop by the photogenic Coos County Logging Museum anytime.
