The lovely little village of Wheeler lies at the edge of the Pacific on Nehalem Bay along Oregon’s spectacular north coast. Wheeler was born in the early 1900’s when a railroad link was completed connecting Portland to the timber-rich area surrounding the bay. The train delivered lumber as well as seafood to eager markets to the east.
The lumber mills and fish packing plants of Wheeler’s early decades are gone now….leaving a village of charming, historic buildings strung together on the edge of that beautiful bay as if they were displayed on a holiday mantle.
Wheeler enjoys a wonderful “mini” climate and is often bathed in sunshine while surrounding coastal areas enjoy fog and mist. Natives call Wheeler “Pukalani” (hole in the sky) as the surrounding hills seem to protect Wheeler from the prevailing northwest wind and fog. Our sunsets can be some of the best in the world!
Wheeler has been called “the little town with the million-dollar view!”. It is a coastal refuge where people come to relax, refresh, and enjoy the scenic splendor of Oregon’s north coast. Wheeler is small enough to be peaceful and unhurried — yet big enough to offer the services and advantages of a tight-knit community. We are very proud of our sweet little town.
Welcome to Wheeler — for a visit …. or a lifetime!
