“Town with the million-dollar payroll”
The Town of Bucoda is defined by its history – its role as the site of the first prison in Washington Territory, its position on the first Northern Pacific transcontinental railroad, and its repute as a historic logging town with a “million dollar payroll.” While many of these industries, and the community bustle associated with them have left Bucoda, the community’s history (and beauty) remains for those who visit.
DON'T MISS THESE LOCAL SPOTS. Really:
- Odd Fellows’ Hall, a structure recently restored by the community and available for events, such as weddings and family get-togethers.
- Volunteer Park offers camping and fishing along the beautiful Skookumchuck River.
- Halloween Haunted House–The town transforms into “Boocoda” for the Halloween season to offer two spooky experiences: SCARY-NIGHTS (not for the faint of heart) and a family friendly version suitable for the littles.
