The Washington Hotel And Restaurant With Railroad Roots That Date Back To 1896

The Long Beach Peninsula certainly isn’t known for its railroad history. But considering many of the communities were established in the mid-1800s, it makes sense that the railroad was the preferred way to distribute mail and people from the north end of the peninsula to the steamboat ferry terminal at Ilwaco. The “Clamshell Railroad” was designed to fill this local need, but it also led to the construction of many new local businesses. Washington’s longest-running hotel was one of them, and the Shelburne Inn (now the Shelburne Hotel) is still going strong today.

During these uncertain times, please keep safety in mind and consider adding destinations to your bucket list to visit at a later date.
