Wahkiakum Chamber of CommerceAs you venture around our site you will find out about our interesting history, and why many of our residents have chosen to live here or open a business. Our Chamber wants you to come and join us either for a day, a week or move here to retire or open a new business.  Wahkiakum County and our Chamber embrace newcomers and love to tell our story.

Lower Columbia River calmIt is a story of many different people from all over the world joining here in this little piece of land to make it a home and a way of life. Settled originally by the Chinook Indians – then Russian fur traders, Scandinavian farmers and loggers, Chinese cannery workers, and easterners looking for gold and land at the end of the Oregon Trail.

Come explore our web site, visit our communities, enjoy our beauty, have fun at our events, and shop with our merchants.
