About Chehalis

Chehalis (pronounced /ʃəˈheɪlɨs/, us dict: shə·hā′·lĭs) is a city in Lewis County, Washington, United States. The population was 7,057 at the 2000 census. It is the county seat of Lewis County.

History

Chehalis began as a settlement around a warehouse beside a railroad track in 1873, when the Northern Pacific Railroad built northward from Kalama to Tacoma, and ignored Claquato, then the county seat three miles to the west. Some settlers decided that, if the railroad would not go to the county seat, the county seat must go to the railroad. By 1874, a store was added to the warehouse, several houses were constructed, and the county seat was moved to the new settlement, leaving Claquato little more than a historical landmark. The new town was first named Saundersville, for S.S. Saunders, on whose donation land claim it was founded. In 1879, the name was changed to Chehalis. Chehalis was officially incorporated on November 23, 1883.

Logging soon began in the near-by forests. Lumber workers of Scandinavian, Anglo-Saxon, and Scots-Irish descent arrived, and remained to settle in the neighboring valleys. In 1940, the chief local industries were: dairying, poultry raising, fruit growing, milk condensing, fruit and vegetable packing, brick and tile manufacturing, coal mining, portable house manufacturing, and fern shipping. The 1940 population was 4,857. (Washington - A guide to the Evergreen State, WPA American Guide Series, Washington State Historical Society, 1941).

Geography

Chehalis is located at 46°39′36″N 122°57′48″W / 46.66°N 122.96333°W / 46.66; -122.96333 (46.659967, -122.963426).

According to the United States Census Bureau, the city has a total area of 5.6 square miles (14.5 km²), all of it land.

The city straddles Interstate 5 at a point almost exactly halfway between Seattle, Washington and Portland, Oregon. The historic downtown and most of the city's amenities lie on the east side of the freeway, nestled at the base of a small range of forested hills. On the west side of the freeway are parks, farms, and a few subdivisions developed in the hills to the west. A small airport is located immediately west of the freeway towards the northern end of the city. From numerous vantage points in the hills just west of town, one can see Mount Rainier, Mount Adams, and Mount St. Helens—weather permitting. Chehalis is a frequented stop by bicyleists while on the annual Seattle to Portland Bike Ride. Come visit.

The Chehalis River winds its way through the valley in which the city resides, and is there joined by a tributary, the Newaukum River. Both rivers are prone to flooding during periods of abnormally heavy or persistent rain, and the lowlands from the freeway westward are particularly susceptible to inundation.

Demographics

As of the census of 2000, there were 7,057 people, 2,671 households, and 1,696 families residing in the city. The population density was 1,259.0 people per square mile (485.7/km²).

December 3, 2007 floods

Due to flooding from the December 2007 Pacific Northwest storms, a twenty-mile stretch of Interstate 5 in Washington was closed between exits 68 and 88, which runs through Lewis County. It was not expected to reopen for several days. The economic cost of the Interstate 5 closure was roughly $8 million a day. To help drain the water from the roadway, a dike was breached to help drain the Chehalis River. At the height of the storm, 75,000 customers in Washington lost electric service. Many remained without power since the start of the storm. As of Dec. 6, 2007, the flood was blamed for eight deaths.

Politics

Like the rest of Lewis County, Chehalis is heavily Republican and conservative, although slightly less so than the county as a whole. The results for the 2004 U.S. Presidential Election were as follows:
