Oysterville Restoration Foundation

Oysterville, Washington

Oysterville is a historic community nestled into Willapa Bay on the Long Beach Peninsula in Washington State. The once lusty boomtown of the mid-nineteenth century faded with the oyster population, leaving behind lovely homes and pioneer descendants, several of whom still own their ancestral properties. In 1976 the village was added to the National Register of Historic places and the Oysterville Restoration Foundation (ORF) was organized shortly thereafter. ORF maintains the church and several open spaces throughout the village.
