NEHALEM - The two historic cannon recovered from the beach at Arch Cape in February are in temporary storage at Nehalem Bay State Park, just off U.S. Highway 101 near Manzanita. The cannon will be available for public viewing from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday at the Nehalem Bay State Park maintenance yard.

The cannon are normally kept submerged in tanks of water to draw out corrosive salt and protect them from damage caused by exposure to the air, but public viewing is possible when the tank water is emptied and refilled.

Information on the cannon is online at
