Tillamook Life Saving Station
The Tillamook Life Saving Station, designed by Victor Mindeleff and built in 1908, is located in Barview. The building and adjacent boathouse are vacant and neglected, and have sustained damage through a car crash and a leaking sewer main. With the future of the building in flux, it is one of ten entries on the Historic Preservation League of Oregon's Most Endangered Places in Oregon 2011 list.
