March 9, 2014 by Sydney Stevens

On April 12, 1854, Isaac Clark and Robert Espy paddled through a dense fog to keep a rendezvous with “Old Klickeas” on the west side of Shoalwater Bay. They followed a rhythmic booming sound and came ashore at a salt meadow where Klickeas had been beating a spruce knot against a hollow log to guide them ashore. The following morning their Indian friend led them out to the tide flats where they were met with the sight of acres of oysters, stretching father to the north and south than the eye could follow. And so, Oysterville began.
