History

Vesper services are held each Sunday during the summer and the church and/or schoolhouse are available for weddings and a variety of community activities. Unbelievable peace and solitude are found here. More Oysterville History

Willapa Bay Interpretive Center

Visit a replica of the residence of oystermen and their families. The Interpretive Center has a video and commands a beautiful view of Willapa Bay.

Oysterville Post Office

The Oysterville post office is the oldest in the state operating under the same name.

Oysterville Cemetery

Chinook Indian Chief Nahcati is buried here along with many early settlers and sailors. For a history buff this is a fascinating place and it is also very quiet and peaceful.

Nahcotta Post Office

The Nahcotta Post office shares the building with Bailey’s Bakery & Cafe. It’s fun to just go in the old post office and imagine what life in Nahcotta was like 100 years ago. More Nahcotta History
