Some Seaside History
The Seaside area was originally inhabited by the Clatsop and Nehalem Indians. Explorers Lewis & Clark sent men south from Fort Clatsop (8 miles north) to make salt for the return trip. They found a spot at what is now Seaside, the official end of the Lewis & Clark Trail. A railroad man named Ben Holladay built a large resort and called it the “Seaside House” in the 1870”s . The town was incorporated in 1899 and is known as Oregon’s oldest resort community. In the 1920’s Seaside residents replaced a wooden boardwalk along the beach with the concrete walk-way known as the “Prom” or “Promenade” and the famous turn-around. The Lewis and Clark statue was added in 1990.
