The Old Cannery Building

The old condemned cannery building was torn down in May 2019 prior to a plan to re-construct the jetty. The goal after demolition of the 80-year old dilapidated structure is to rebuild a more modern facility which would be a boon for the economy. A new cannery building would have room for the prior tenants plus two other canneries, a seaweed cultivation center, research and lab space for Oregon State University and a seawater delivery system.
