Silversea Luxury Cruises A Stevenson, WA

Stevenson, WA

Stevenson is located about 150 miles up the Columbia River in the heart of the Columbia River Gorge National Scenic Area. It is a prime jumping-off point for exploring the southern Washington’s Gifford Pinchot National Forest, Mount St. Helens and other outdoor treasures. The first settler in the region was L.F. Iman, who built a water-powered sawmill in 1852. Years later, in 1893, George Stevenson, a settler from Missouri, purchased the site for $24,000 and built the original town along the flatlands near the river. View more

The city was officially incorporated in December 1907. A year later, the Seattle Portland & Seattle Railway arrived, pushing the town up the hill away from the river, and within a few years the town contained saloons, a hotel, a skating rink, and a ballpark. A ferry connected Stevenson to Cascade Locks, on the Oregon shore of the Columbia. Today historic Stevenson is a thriving small city with about 1,465 residents
