Claquato Church

Claquato, Washington

Stearns Rd @ Water St

Built in 1857, this historic Methodist church is the oldest standing building in Washington. Its louvered belfry and crown steeple was modeled after New England meeting houses of the day.

The village faded when it was bypassed by the railroad in 1874, and was officially dropped as a town in 1902. Today the village is often regarded as part of Chehalis.
