THE ANCIENT TRADING PATH


Near this location passed an important traditional trading path. First forged by game animals, later followed by Native Americans, fur-traders from the Hudson’s Bay Company, and American Pioneers who established a permanent settlement here in 1845. Known as the Cowlitz Trail, it was the overland route between Puget Sound and Fort Vancouver on the Columbia River, where it linked with eastern trails.
