The lovely little village of Wheeler lies at the edge of the Pacific, on Nehalem Bay, along Oregon’s spectacular north coast.  The lumber mills and fish packing plants of Wheeler’s early decades are gone now….leaving a string of charming, historic buildings on the edge of our beautiful bay, as if displayed on a holiday mantle.

Wheeler enjoys a wonderful “mini” climate and is often bathed in sunshine while surrounding coastal areas see only 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!
