Muriel O Ponsler Memorial State Scenic Viewpoint – Florence OR

Description

The State of Oregon received a two-acre, ocean-front property from Jack Ponsler in 1939 to be made into a public park in memory of his wife Muriel O. Ponsler. Civilian Conservation Corps enrollees provided the labor to develop it. The small park’s improvements consisted primarily of a picnic area and viewpoint with a circular access road. The entrance to the park is enhanced by an ornamental stone fence on both sides of the circular roadway.
