Oysterville was founded in the mid-1800s and is entirely on the National Historic Register. A visit here is like stepping back in time. The town originally prospered due to the local Willapa Bay oyster beds. The town was the county seat with a college, hotels and a newspaper. Oysterville declined after the Clamshell Railroad stopped just south in Nahcotta. Then the county seat was moved one night to near by South Bend.
Today you can still buy fresh oyster and many other local artisan foods here. Stroll the streets and discover the rich history of this unique small town.
