Cape Disappointment Lighthouse

Cape Disappointment Lighthouse

A cape on the mouth's north side marks the entrance to the river. Named "Kah'eese" by the local Indians, it received its current name from Captain John Meares. On July 6, 1788, Meares sought shelter from a turbulent sea but to no avail. He named the cape, "Cape Disappointment."
