About HoquiamForest products have been a staple of Hoquiam's economy since its first sawmill opened in 1882. The city's name derives from the Chehalis Indian word Ho-qui-umpts, meaning “hungry for wood.” Grays Harbor is a natural outlet for the area's prime export. The tidal flats lining the harbor west of town shelter migrating shorebirds in spring and fall.

Built in the late 1920s, the 7th Street Theatre, 313 7th St., was the first theater in the state to show talking motion pictures; phone (360) 537-7400.
