Looking Back — Downtown Hoquiam

This aerial view of Hoquiam in the 1920s shows the old 8th Street Bridge over the Hoquiam River and the main business section of downtown. With the exception of the old bank building (and its next door neighbor) at the foot of the bridge, this whole area is completely different today. Most of the buildings are gone or replaced, many as a result of the urban renewal that took place in the late 1960s.

100 years ago in the Washie

These stories were originally published in the Washingtonian 100 years ago this week. The “Washie,” Hoquiam’s paper, was published daily from 1903 to 1951 and for six more years as a weekly, folding in 1957. The stories are selected by Polson Museum Director John Larson and museum volunteer Sue Moyer.
