DescriptionElbe was first called Browns Junction, but the town's name was changed to honor pioneer settler Henry Lutkens' birthplace, the Elbe Valley in Germany. The diminutive Little White Church on SR 7, built in 1906 for the area's German-speaking Lutheran congregation, is a National Historic Site.
The Ashford Art Museum, 8 miles east in the Ashford Creek Pottery & Gallery at 30510 SR 706 East, has exhibits by Northwest artists from 1895 to the present, a collection of historic photographs and more than 500 vintage Mount Rainier postcards; phone (360) 569-1000 or (360) 569-2933.
