Nye Beach, historically, is one of the finest vacation spots on the Oregon Coast. For over 100 years, people from Portland and the Willamette Valley have been coming to this favorite place to seek solace in and alongside the waters of the Pacific Ocean.

In times past, cottages were built where women and children would spend their summers while the men of the families would join them for the weekend excursions in the beautiful expansive Nye Creek area. In 1891, a boardwalk was built connecting the Nye Creek and the Newport Bayfront.

Nye Beach from early on became a popular area for summer college classes which were held in a specially-built auditorium. In 1902, Dr. Minthorn (stepfather of President Herbert Hoover) built a sanitarium east of what is now the Sylvia Beach Hotel. The sanitorium offered hot sea water baths and small dressing rooms for changing into street clothes after a dip in the surf.

A favorite place in Nye Beach during the first half of the century was the Natatorium. This structure stood on ground now used to provide free parking at the Nye Beach Turnaround.

During WWII, patriots with rifles and dogs patrolled the beach area to keep the country safe from invasion.

A place to escape from the trials of the day has always been a secret of Nye Beach. Today, as a century ago, this colorful seaside community retains tradtional charm and beauty in its friendly village of shops, services, guest accommodations. Home of Newport's Performing Arts Center and Visual Art's Center, the Oregon Coast Council for the Arts, Yaquina Art Association, and Writers on the Edge, the Nye Beach community sustains a determined focus on the arts.
