The Heceta (Ha-SEE-ta) Head Lighthouse will shut down for July for repair work. The Oregon Parks and Recreation Department said Tuesday that the lighthouse would close on July 1 and will reopen by July 31.

The repairs will address several cracked interior metal columns on the facility’s upper floor and will cost about $135,000.

The lighthouse lens will be covered during the work to protect it from damage.

The historic assistant lighthouse keepers house, which the U.S. Forest Service operates through a concessionaire as a bed and breakfast, will remain open.

Heceta Head is a working lighthouse and was built around 1894.

Its beam can cast light 21 miles out to sea.

It is believed to be the most photographed lighthouse in the United States.
