Kalama, WA

About KalamaFounded in the 1840s, Kalama is named for Hawaiian native John Kalama, who settled in the area after marrying the daughter of a Nisqually chief. In addition to being a busy shipping center, Kalama claims two superlatives: a 149-foot single-tree totem pole, in Marine Park, and the first fish hatchery in the state. The latter has been replaced by two newer hatcheries. Nearly 100 antique dealers are in malls and individual shops on N. 1st Street.

The Kalama Transportation Interpretive Center , off I-5 exit 30 at 110 W. Marine Dr., has exhibits and displays detailing Kalama’s first inhabitants, the Cowlitz tribe, early settlers and the city’s transportation history; phone (360) 673-2325.
