The dedication will take place at the Coos Bay Visitors Center, 50 Central Ave, near US Hwy. 101.

A formal unveiling of the marker during the dedication will be supported by presentations from the Tribal Council, Coos Bay Mayor Crystal Shoji, OTE CEO Cheryl Gribskov, and Oregon Historical Marker Committee Chair Richard Engeman.

The Southern Coast Regional Marker interprets the cultural history of the tribes who lived in the region. It also depicts how early gold prospectors built their homes and businesses within the Coos Bay area; from the first commercial salmon canneries in the 1850s to modern tourism in the 21st century.
