History & History Related Items

As early as 1579, explorer Sir Francis Drake is said to have taken shelter in the bay on his ship, the Golden Hind. Other explorers, traders and settlers also came into the area. First known as Yarrow, North Bend is over 100 years old. It is bounded by Coos Bay, the city and Coos Bay, the body of water. From the north you must pass over the Conde B. McCullough Memorial Bridge to enter the town. In fact, this bridge is the official symbol of the city. The Hudson Bay Company probably arrived here in the 1820s. After a shipwreck in 1852, the plight of the survivors brought attention to the area and soon more settlers and miners arrived. As the timber industry expanded and more sawmills were built, other related industries began to flourish and grow. When the McCullough Bridge was built in 1936, it completed the major Highway 101 and brought easy access to North Bend and the area.
