Town of Pe Ell
The town of Pe Ell is located on the western edge of Lewis County along Highway 6 and the Chehalis River.
In 1897, the North Pacific Railway built a depot in town and the population began to boom. The town was incorporated in 1906 and had a population of about 1,000 in 1907. According to Wikipedia, “the rich agricultural and timber resources of the region attracted farmers, millworkers and loggers. By 1909, the town had a bank, three dry goods stores, two general stores, three grocery stores, two barber shops, five saloons, four hotels, a newspaper, a blacksmith and even an opera house.” Today the population is about 640.
