The Eagle's Nest was designed and named by Samuel Lancaster, the chief engineer and landscape architect of the Columbia River Highway. The original Eagle's offered scenic views of the Columbia River and the town of Bonneville. However, with the construction of the Bonneville Dam, the original Eagle's Nest was demolished. In 1996, as part of an effort to restore the original Columbia River Highway, a new Eagle's Nest was built.
