Standard Marine No. 1., Garibaldi, Oregon

Standard Marine No. 1., Garibaldi, Oregon

Originally a small county-run boat basin, the port at Garibaldi has grown into one of the Oregon Coast’s top harbors since taking over the port authority from Bay City in the mid-20th century. In its early days, Garibaldi thrived on the lumber business, milling and shipping logs from the huge stands of old-growth Sitka spruce forests that filled the hills above the harbor. But the Great Depression, followed by the Great Tillamook Burn, brought the beginning of a long decline to the area. Today, the port has bounced back as a busy hub of sport and commercial fishing, and in 2010 celebrated its 100th anniversary.
