'a only brief visited timber into it quickly was the first logger to om his own camp and cookhouse. I have no record of the date o his arrival. Hay was hauled by scow from the Skokomish Reservation for his oxen; his beef came from the Willy farm at Oakland Bay by ox team to Union, then by boat to Lilliwaup taking three days to deliver to his camp. The R. Wilkenson family were the first permanent settlers, com- ing in the early 1870's. He develop- ed a homestead below the falls, cleared wide fields and a big orch- ard, and lived there for many years. He later sold to Winfield Taylor and moved to Skagit Coun- ty. FOLLOWING the completion of the railroads to the West and the proposed survey along the Canal to Port Townsend, there was much publicity in Eastern papers of the many opportunities in this area. This publicity was greatly stimu- lated by the steamship lines and land promoters. Captain Troutman, then owner of the ship Delts, centered his in-i ]crests at Lilliwaup. He bought the big farm, where his widow lived for over 25 years. He also purchased a tract of land on the little bay, where his daughter built a big house. A Stlbsidiary of P. N. Hirsch & Co. Published in 'Chrstmastown, ",ur I,p I ,, O. Kittelsby located acPoss the -- river on the norI1 srae of the big bay, built a cabin and planted an orchard adjoining his homestead. John MaLtson built a permanent dwelling on the point, known to old timers as Mattson's Spit. John Sund built a log cabin on the south bay of Liliwaup and developed a stone quarry. IN 1890 TtIE Lilliwaup Fails Townsite Company purchased the logged off land along the little bay and platted a big city. Almost like magic, large buildings sprang up; hotels, saloons, a dng store, a department store, a lumber yard, a cabinet shop and stone quarry. A long dock was built. A bridge was built across the little bay. Wide streets were put around the point to the residential section and school. The Delta made daily trips from Seattle carrying mail, pas- sengers and freight. Property be- cane valuable. It was quickly pur- chased and quickly sold for large sums. The boom lasted only one ),ear, then people disappeared as quickly as they had arrived. Many of the buildings were left to tum- ble and decay, others were sold and moved away to other parts of the Canal. Those who remained at Lilliwaup down through the years were George Ante, Furnace, Dora Trout- man, John Sund, John Mattson and Thomas James.
