Wheeler, the Gem of the Oregon Coast

2013 – Wheeler’s Centennial Year

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 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!

W 18-05 PC – Notice



The City of Wheeler has been awarded an ODOT Small City Allotment grant for improvement to Wheeler City streets. This program requires the City to submit an application for improvements that either serve heavily trafficked thoroughfares, or based upon a high public need. As the City has inventoried public needs based on improvement to public safety as its highest priority, this years application was awarded contingent upon this premise. The timeline for work has yet to be established, but the City plans to pave this summer. Included in this project will be the paving 2nd Street (from Rowe Street to Akin Street), Vosburg Street (3rd Street to 4th Street), and Dubois Street (US 101 to Winkler Street). The paving project at 4th Street was dropped due to funding limitations. To see the project plan, please click the link below.
