The Daily Herald - - NORTHWEST EXTRA -

Can­non Beach’s 2,000-pound name­sake is back home. The Daily As­to­rian re­ported that the iron can­non will be in­cluded in a per­ma­nent ex­hibit at the Can­non Beach His­tory Cen­ter and Mu­seum. It is ex­pected to be set up by mid-sum­mer. The was named Ecola un­til 1922, when res­i­dents voted to adopt the name Can­non Beach. His­to­ri­ans be­lieve the can­non is from the deck of the USS Shark, a naval schooner that sank in the Columbia River in 1846. It was found, lost, and came ashore again in 1898.
