Elizabeth Black shares the ‘mostly accurate’ history of Lincoln City

Posted: Wednesday, Feb 19th, 2014

Local tour guide extraordinaire Elizabeth Black leads bus tours around the north and south ends of Lincoln City, providing history buffs with a “mostly accurate” history tour of the communities that incorporated to become Lincoln City in 1965. - A 14-foot bronze sculpture of Abraham Lincoln reading on horseback can be found along 22nd Street in the former Oceanlake neighborhood. The statue was given to the city by famed equestrian sculptor Anna Hyatt Huntington. - Stop by the Regatta Grounds Park to catch a glimpse of the Devils Lake monster, along with a giant old growth Sitka spruce tree. Don’t worry, many people say the Devils Lake monster looks more like a friendly dragon than a scary beast. - Tour guide Elizabeth Black and tour goers visit the slightly hidden Indian cemetery at Wecoma, located at NW 30th Street and Port Avenue. This is the burial site of the John Morris family. The Morris family were members of the Confederated Tribes of Siletz Indians.
