In 1806,Clark and several of his colleagues completed a three days journey to the site of the beached whale where they encountered a group of Americans from the Tillamook tribe. Clark and his companions met with these men and bought some blubber and some whale oil from them for about 300pounds before they returned to FlotClatsop. To commemorate the meeting of clarks group and the tillamooks, a wooden whale sculpture was placed at the northern end of Hemlock sreet and clark applied the name “EKOLI” to it, which is now called Ecola Creek. In 1922, Ecola Creek was then redubbed Cannon Beach.
