In the early days of arduous travel between the Columbia River and the Puget Sound, those coming up the Cowlitz River saw a large rock formation next to the river, which they named Castle Rock. It was here, nestled between the Willapa Hills and the Cascade mountains, that William and Eliza Huntington made their homestead in 1852. Theirs and several other early land grants make up what is now the site of Castle Rock, a town which has survived everything from floods to the eruption of Mount St. Helens. Learn more in this pictorial history of the town from agriculture, to timber boom, to building community.
