Tillamook Rock Lighthouse lies 1.2 miles off the coast near Seaside, OR.  The 62 ft high tower sits 133 ft above see level on a basalt rock islet.  Exposure to storm waves led to its nickname "Terrible Tilly".  Commissioned in 1881 to help guide ships entering the Columbia River, it was replaced by whistle buoy in 1957.  It was among the most remote and least hospitable light stations in America.  Now privately owned columbarium (storage place for ashes of the deceased). No public access.
