About our towns WASHINGTON Longview

Robert A. Long’s vision of a planned city became reality in 1923, with the creation of the town of Longview. The name came from the timber baron’s farm in Kansas City, Mo. Long, owner of the former Long-Bell Lumber Co., pumped millions of dollars into starting up the sawmills and erecting such prestigious landmark buildings as the Monticello Hotel and Longview Community Church. At the same time, Fowler’s Slough, which ran through the middle of town, was dredged to become “Longview’s jewel,” Lake Sacajawea. The dredge spoils shored up the swampy areas surrounding the lake and provided firm surfaces for nowhistoric “Old West Side” homes. The development brought workers to the area by the thousands, swelling the population and providing a base for the community, which today boasts a population of about 36,000. Longview has expanded beyond the boundaries first envisioned by Long. Growth in West Longview has boomed in recent years, as have housing developments in the green hills surrounding the city.



Castle Rock

William Huntington founded the town of Castle Rock on the bend of the Cowlitz River in 1852. The city was named for a huge solid rock near the site of the founder’s log home, and the moniker stuck until the town was platted in 1889. The town was incorporated in 1890 and A.H. Goddard was chosen as its first mayor and pioneer druggist, D.J. Hille, was the first town clerk. In 1870, the arrival of the Northern Pacific Railroad opened the town to new settlers. River steamers also became an important means of transport and commerce up and down the Cowlitz. Over the next couple of decades, many shingle mills popped up, and the Toutle River soon jammed with bobbing shingle bolts —- short cedar cuts used to make shingles.

Peter Crawford came to the banks of the Cowlitz River in 1840. The Scottish land surveyor had hoped to strike it rich with gold in California, but ended up giving life to what is today’s thriving Kelso community. The town is named after a burg along the River Tweed in Crawford’s native Scotland. After a time away, Crawford returned to Kelso and made his living by surveying the towns developing along the Columbia River. He gave away land to businesses or families who agreed to settle in the town. Crawford’s dream of Kelso becoming county seat became reality, but not until 1922 —- 33 years after the founder’s death. Not many glimpses of Crawford’s town remain, but the pioneering spirit that built the city is carried through his descendants and all the people who choose Kelso as their home. Kelso’s downtown core is anchored by City Hall and punctuated with the weekly Bridge Market, at which farmers, crafters and other vendors feature their wares. A large mall and a bowling alley and entertainment center; Hilander supposed to get a tenant) just off Interstate 5 provide shopping and entertainment for visitors and the roughly 12,000 residents.

More than a century later, those shingle mills no longer exist. But the population of Castle Rock has remained relatively steady, and today the quiet town is home to roughly 2,150 people. Several small shops and restaurants line the town’s downtown corridor. Cathlamet

An ancient church perched on a hillside speaks well of the history of Cathlamet. The town, built alongside the Columbia River, has its roots deep within the river’s bed as well. It was 1846 when James Birnie, a native of Aberdeen, Scotland, and a trader with the Hudson Bay Co., arrived by canoe with his wife and 10 children and built a home at the site that would be Cathlamet. Other settlers followed —- farmers, fishermen and loggers. It wasn’t long before Birnie’s Retreat, as it was first called, was renamed Cathlamet. The town was incorporated in 1907, but its boomtown days occurred while most of the rest of the country was sunk in the middle of a depression. Despite being hard-hit by rising utility rates and fishing restrictions in the 1980s, the riverfront town has weathered the storms and continues to hold its own. Visitors admire vintage buildings and views of the water, as well as a quaint downtown district dotted with interesting stores, places to stay and eateries. Kalama

How the town of Kalama got its name is a mystery that may never be solved. Does it come from an Indian phrase, meaning “pretty girl”? Or does the city get its name from John Kalama, a native Hawaiian who lived there with his Nisqually Indian bride after working for the Hudson Bay Company? Local historians have determined that it’s a combination of both. For the people who live there, it really doesn’t matter. They revel in their dual history —- Indian and Hawaiian. A narrow strip of the town lies alongside the bustle of Interstate 5. Homes perch on steep inclines above the town —- a few of them have been there since the Northern Pacific Railroad chose Kalama as the temporary western terminus of its line from Duluth, Minn., to the Pacific Coast. But the city’s earliest beginnings stem to 1853, when Ezra Meeker built a cabin there. The town, home to roughly 2,475 people, features a collection of antique stores, as well as a park devoted to Northwest Indian-carved totem poles. Kalama is home to one of the tallest single tree totem poles in the world, carved by the late Chief Don Lelooska of Ariel, Wash. Fishing and boating are two of the leisure opportunities available to visitors and residents. Puget Island

In the beginning, Puget Island was nothing more than a sand and gravel bar in the middle of the Columbia River. Thousands of years of rich silt gradually created the island we know today. Capt. Robert Gray was the first American to see the

The Daily News online: www.tdn.com

strip of land during a mission of discovery in his ship, the Columbia. And in November 1805, Lewis and Clark observed the island as they passed in their canoes toward their journey’s end, less than 50 miles to the west. Scandinavian settlers later came to the island, which was prone to flooding, and built a community based on farming and fish seining. While other nationalities have also come to populate the island, if you open a phone book, you’ll see many of the Scandinavian family names that played a large part in the community’s development. A large steel bridge connects the island to Washington and the town of Cathlamet, and a ferry system creates a tie between the small community and Westport, Ore. Many workers at the James River mill at Wauna travel between states by way of the ferry. The island also has many old buildings, including the Norse Hall, which was built in 1941. Visitors can traverse the area using roads with interesting names such as Welcome Slough, Schoolhouse, Little Island and Sunny Sands. Ryderwood

The founding of the town of Ryderwood coincided with that of Longview. Both towns were business ventures of the logging partnership of Long-Bell. Ryderwood’s layout and construction began in 1923. It was named for “Uncle Bill” W.F. Ryder, the first Long-Bell official to come to this area for the company. Originally planned for 4,800 residents, the town never approached that population expectation. In its heyday, it had as many as 2,000 residents, making it the third largest city in Cowlitz County. In 1952, Long-Bell officials announced that the town was for sale and in 1953, a new corporation known as Senior Estates Inc. moved in as owners. The town has been a haven for retirees ever since. Skamokawa

When Lewis and Clark journeyed west, one of their stops along the way included a visit and the gifting of a friendship medal to an Indian leader, Chief Skamokawa. Questions exist as to the exact spelling of the man’s name, but there’s no doubt that he is who the town of Skamokawa is named after. The first white resident, a trader by the name of Capt. James Couch, settled in that area in 1844. The Indian meaning of the name is “smoke on the water” —- a vivid way of describing the common scene of fog rolling about the Columbia River. Skamokawa rests quietly along the river’s banks. High above the township is the towering Redmen Hall, a Queen Anne-style former school and meeting place for a private group which was revamped in the early 1990s. In 1992 — in conjunction with the bicentennial of Capt. Robert Gray’s first exploration of the Columbia —- the hall and the River Life Interpretive Center —- opened to the public. Other attractions for the small town include the

ALL THE ESSENTIALS 2010

annual Wahkiakum County Fair, which is held on the grounds near Redmen Hall. Leisure activities such as fishing, boating, kayaking, hiking and others can be enjoyed in the vintage atmosphere of this tiny river town. Toledo

Simon Plomondon was the first white settler in Southwest Washington. As a representative of the Hudson Bay Co., he came to the Cowlitz Prairie area north of Toledo. A demand for shipping facilities to and from Cowlitz Prairie led to the establishment of Cowlitz Landing, which in turn kicked in the growth of Toledo, a mile and a quarter upstream. The town’s name came in 1881 from the wife of one of its original settlers, Augustus Rochon. Mrs. Rochon named the town after the steamer, Toledo, which had started regular runs up the river two years earlier. In 1892, an election was held and the town of Toledo officially came into existence. A variety of business enterprises flourished in the area, including a cigar factory and soap factory. Hop growing was widespread in the late 1800s and early 1900s and logging expanded rapidly as well. But the town was truly built on cheese, and a cooperative factory for the tasty treat was established in 1919. This was the inspiration for the first annual Cheese Days celebration, which town residents celebrate to this day.

the muddy flows from the mountain. Homes and fishing holes that once graced the river’s banks were lost forever to the volcano’s destructive force. But the volcano also gave the communities a new way of bringing in tourists. People from all around the world travel up Spirit Lake Memorial Highway and stop along the way at the visitor centers that document the mountain’s eruption and at the various other gift shops and tourist attractions. Many local people hold fond memories of fishing on Spirit Lake, which remains beautiful and untouched by the volcanic eruption. Community members and visitors find a touch of serenity through renting a boat and floating lazily along the lake’s pristine waters, with a postcard view of Mount St. Helens gracing the background. Vader

The town of Vader has been known by at least two other names. In the 1880s, pioneers knew it as Sopenah. Later, the moniker changed to Little Falls. At the behest of Northern Pacific Railroad, townfolk settled on its current title, which was in honor of its oldest citizen, a Civil War veteran named Marten Vader. At one time, the town had three sawmills, a number of stores and a train depot. The Little Falls Clay Company churned out bricks from the fine clay lodged inside the land around the community.

Toutle and Silver Lake

The moniker of the town of Toutle was established in 1841 and is derived from Hullooetell, a local Indian tribe name. Napolean Gardner established the post office in 1883, and his sons, William F. Gardner and Harry Gardner later served as postmasters. The townsite was moved in February 1950 to its current location. The small community known as Silver Lake derives its name from the lake where many of its residents make their homes nearby. The area’s earliest settlers were George White and James Farnsworth, who established donation land claims in 1870. Soon many others followed. Although the Toutle and Silver Lake areas have been known as local gems for visiting, fishing and other outdoor excursions, their names really hit the worldwide maps after the eruption of Mount St. Helens on May 18, 1980. The Toutle River Valley was changed forever by

Today, the town that once housed some 5,000 people now has about 615. The community’s downtown area offers places to purchase groceries and other items. Visitors can enjoy a quiet stroll through town or a stop at one of the community’s eateries. Two of the town’s oldest buildings, the Grace United Methodist Church and the Ben Olson House, are on the National Register of Historic Places. Yearly, Vader celebrates the coming summer with May Day. A farmers market also is held every Saturday during the summer. Winlock

Winlock was platted in 1875 and incorporated in 1883. At one time, the town was home of the first big inland railroad sawmill in the Pacific Northwest, and its growth coincided with the completion of the last continental link of the Northern Pacific Railroad from Kalama to Tacoma. Later, Winlock’s thriving poultry and egg growing industry helped cement the town’s foundation. At one time, the town’s hatcheries produced more than 2 million chickens annually. In tribute to that, the “World’s Largest Egg” was erected in Vern Zander Memorial Park. It was inspired by a parade in which Winlock’s entry was a huge egg. The egg also is celebrated during the town’s annual Egg Days festival, usually held in June. The big feature of the event? Egg salad sandwiches served fresh on soft white bread. The downtown core of Winlock features a number of small stores and eateries. Woodland

The original eight-block townsite of Woodland was platted in 1881 and in that same year, C.C. Bozarth founded a general store on the Squire Bozarth donation land claim. He also gave the town its name. After the turn of the century, rail constructions to Woodland, a new bridge over the Lewis River and the diking of the Woodland Bottoms all meant tremendous strides in community development. Before that, steamboats were the main means of transportation to the town and a ferry system was the primary service across the Lewis River. Decades later, the town of Woodland continues to grow by leaps and bounds. Homesites have sprung up along the banks of the Lewis River, as well as along the popular fishing and boating site, Horseshoe Lake. Old town Woodland, on the west side of Interstate 5, features several thriving businesses and the historic Hulda Klager Lilac Gardens. East of I-5 are stores and restaurants. A couple of sights along the eastward trek of the Lewis River Highway include the historic 1876 Grist Mill on the south side of the Lewis River and the 18hole Lewis River Golf Course bordered by the north fork of the Lewis River. The town’s pride and joy is its yearly festival, Planters Day, which commemorates the building of the dikes to keep the Columbia and Lewis rivers from flooding the

town. This event is the longest-running, continuous festival in the state of Washington.

OREGON Clatskanie A bachelor named Isaac Wagoner was the first white man to claim land at what is now Clatskanie, an area originally settled by the Tlatskani Indians. Not long after, in 1854, Elihu Bryant and his family arrived. They and other settlers logged the land and tried to establish farms. The town was originally called Bryantville until the first post office was established in 1871, and a version of the Indian name was adopted instead. The town was incorporated in 1893. Like many other Washington and Oregon communities, logging shored up this tiny community until the 1960s. As supplies thinned, the economy took a nosedive. Then in 1965, Crown Zellerbach planned to open a $90 million paper mill at Wauna, which prompted a small boom in population. This has leveled off today at about 1,650. Flourishing along the banks of the Columbia River, Clatskanie proper is filled with an assortment of small businesses and eateries. A national historic preservation site, The Castle, also is available for tours. The mansion was built between 1898 and 1900 by local lumberman T.J. Flippin and contains antique furniture and decor. Rainier

Located conveniently at the crossroads of two states, Rainier enjoys the patronage and favor of residents from Oregon and Washington. The town, which is just a short jaunt across the Lewis and Clark Bridge, was at one time a small trading post known as Eminence. But, that was in 1836. Fifteen years later, it became known as Rainier. With a current population of about 1,830, the city has seen its share of hardship —- from fires in 1904 and 1924 that gutted the business district, to massive layoffs that occurred after the closure of the Crown Zellerbach sawmill at Wauna and through the subsequent powering down of the Trojan Nuclear Power Plant. Despite these bumps in the road, the town continues to blossom along the shores of the Columbia River. A city park offers scenic views of the waterfront, handy space for walkers and children and a place for the town’s annual festival, Rainier Days in the Park. The downtown area is dotted with family-operated stores and various spots for visitors to sit a spell and enjoy a good meal or a cold drink.

Freeway exits Getting around the Lower Columbia region via Inter-

state 5 is an uncomplicated affair. Unlike large cities, there aren’t that many freeway exits to cause confusion, and the ones we have are well-marked. But if you’re looking for a little help in advance, here are listings of the local freeway exits and the areas they go to.

Tennant and other Longview civic leaders invited the Sisters of St. Joseph of Peace to come to Longview to reopen the failed Longview Memorial Hospital built in 1924. Within six months, the sisters had launched a subscription drive and purchased the hospital. They opened it in 1943 under the name St. John’s Hospital. The first major expansion was completed in 1952, adding 60 in-patient beds, expanded obstetric services and new operating rooms. Later hospital expansions included construction of a seven-story patient tower in 1968. In 1982, the Intensive Care Unit and the surgery area were expanded. An 84-provider multi-specialty medical group, PeaceHealth Medical Group, was formed in 1992. A $54 million expansion in 1999 added the PeaceHealth Professional Building, new operating rooms, a four-level parking structure and other services. Phase one of a $46 million hospital tower renovation project was completed in the summer of 2006 with the opening of a new birthing center. Over the past four years, the renovation has included renovation and expansion of the Emergency Department, three floors of new medical/surgical rooms, plus new behavioral health, birth center and critical care units.
