Detailed chart of Chetko Bay, Oregon, published by the United States Coast & Geodetic Survey.

The map shows the lower Chetko River and the area around Brookings, Oregon in the north to the area around McVay Rock, named for William McVay, who settled in the area in 1861.

Along the coast, Miller's House is shown, the residence of A.F. Miller, who farmed the area from beginning in 1850.  His crops included an Indian Tobacco which he had found the local Chetko Tribe growing when he arrived.  Across the river is a small Indian Village (Chetko Tribe), with a Boat Landing north of the mouth of the River.  A saw mill is shown on the Chetko River, along with several other unnamed buildings and the Coast Trail.

Includes extensive notes on Buoys, Tides, Soundings and other features, with rocks, kelp forests, small islands and some topographical features noted.  The chart is based upon:

  • Trianguation by A.W. Chase in 1869 and 1870
  • Topography by A.W. Chase in 1876
  • Hydrography by P.C. Johnson in 1873.
