Let’s take a closer look at this unique piece of Washington's history.

The History of the Tokeland Hotel as posted by the Tokeland Hotel:

In 1858 George and Charlotte Brown settled among the Shoalwater Tribe led by Chief Toke. The Browns homesteaded 1400 acres, raised crops, kept livestock, and traded with the Native Americans.

Later, the Browns’ daughter, Elizabeth, and her husband, William Kindred, built the current structure as a home and haven for travelers.

With their daughters, Maud and Elizabeth, they purchased additional land and developed a golf course, dairy, oyster farm, and post office.

The Tokeland Hotel was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1978.

According to Wikipedia, the Tokeland Hotel might have a resident ghost.

As the story goes, "Charley", an immigrant, got caught between the walls hiding from authorities and died.

The locals believe that "Charley" roams the hotel. It's also speculated that rooms 4 and 7 are haunted and are very popular rental rooms.

The Tokeland Hotel has been standing since 1885 and has seen some amazing changes over that time.
