Pictured within are pages two and three from a four-and-a-half page oral history by Oysterville’s co-founder R.H. Espy. The information was written by Espy’s son, Harry, during an interview on Sunday, July 13, 1913. I, (Harry’s granddaughter) found it in a little diary, more or less “buried” between at the end of a listing of Harry’s ‘Personal Expenditures’ from 1899 to 1902. I had set the diary aside on numerous occasions thinking it held nothing of importance. I was quite wrong.

The Summer/Fall 2011 issue of The Sou'wester (semi-annual publication of the Pacific County Historical Society) is devoted in its entirety to the Historic Oysterville Church. The history of its beginnings, its construction, the pastors who served it, and the important events that have occurred there during the past 120 years are all documented "for posterity," according to the magazine's guest editor, Sydney Stevens.
