Fogarty Creek, Oregon Coast
FOGARTY CREEK, Oregon Coast This creek was known to early settlers as Salmon Creek until one Sunday in the year 1903, Mr. Fogarty, then a county commissioner, wearing his Sunday clothes, came to look over a possible site for the bridge across the creek. He lost his footing, and had an unscheduled swim. Thereafter the homesteaders called the creek by his name. Indian Head Rock is so named because of its resemblance to the profile of an Indian. It was originally called Rabbit Rock.
