The Old House and the Sea

Ilwaco House

The history of Ilwaco, a small but active port on Washington’s Long Beach Peninsula, is built into an historic home that sits high on a hill. When the house was under construction in the early 1930s, a nearby Civil War-era fort was being decommissioned, and the staircase from the captain’s quarters was dismantled and rebuilt in the house. It’s just one detail in the house that is filled with character and history. That charm is what caught Richard Ellis’s eye almost...
