Oysterville was a community and town founded close to Long Beach Washington, near the Chinook people. Newcomers started arriving around the mid 1800s. I'm not sure if anyone knows an exact incorporation date anymore.
As the name indicates, oyster farming was one of the community's strengths. According to stories, that made the community rather well-off. Popular writer Willard R. Espy grew up there. Today, its an unincorporated community. Some use the term a small village for what exists now.
This is one of the old towns and only still standing Churches. It was a Methodist Church. During the day its open to the public for visitors.
Many of the building have be lost and succumbed to time. This house looks next.
