St Marys in McGowan

Local Seaview resident and Wa State Historical Society guru-Jim Sayce- took this photo that is in the paper today. He commented that it is no wonder Lewis & Clark decided to move over to Oregon for the winter.

"St. Mary’s Catholic Church in McGowan was picture-postcard pretty in this blizzardy photo taken Sunday at about 1:30 in the afternoon. Jim Sayce of the Washington State Historical Society notes that it’s no wonder the Chinook Tribe traditionally decamped from their Middle Village site (at what would become McGowan) in order to spend winters elsewhere in the area."
(yes, this is where the Ring 2 was filmed)
