The Public Works Administration (PWA) funded the construction of the Sea Lion Point Rock Wall near Florence, Oregon.
According to the Oregon Department of Transportation, “[t]his section of rock wall (.36 miles) extends around Sea Lion Point, providing a pull-out for viewing, [then up] to the north entrance of the Sea Lion Caves parking lot. The wall is a low, solid structure and believed to have been built under the federal Public Works Administration Program during the early 1930s.”
