Prior to the incorporation of Lincoln City in 1965, the area was made up of six small coastal towns: Cutler City, Taft, Nelscott, DeLake, Oceanlake & Wecoma Beach. The effort created a long and narrow city with six distinct business districts and village identities. These districts are now known as “The String of Pearls”. Nelscott is the latest “pearl” to be revitalized. You can find out all the details by visiting www.historicnelscott.org. What is the difference between the homes at Olivia Beach & Bella Beach? - We have been able to make several refinements in Olivia Beach that were not considered or afforded when developing our first neighborhood, Bella Beach. Sidewalks, curbs, street trees, street lights, paved alleys and oyster shell paths are just some of the differences you’ll find in the neighborhood. The cottages include several improvements from our earlier work. Architecturally correct siding and porch details, picket fences, improved landscaping, hard wood floors, granite counter tops and improved floor plans will add character to these carefully crafted cottages. Olivia Beach includes more park space and a swimming pool. The beach at Olivia is considered superior and the in town location of Olivia Beach makes for easier accessibility to shops & restaurants.
