Since I'm feeling ambitious today, I think that I'll show you guys Grays Harbor County's second city - Hoquiam (pronounced Ho-Kwee-Uhmm). Hoquiam has a population of a little over 9,000 and borders Aberdeen to the Northwest.

What I found quite strange about Hoquiam is that while Aberdeen appears to have replaced many of its older public buildings with uglier and less urban modern ones, Hoquiam has left the grand public buildings and kept them up while letting the downtown decay. It's an odd contrast, but I guess it does make sense that these two cities that have a friendly rivalry going on would take completely opposite strategies. Hoquiam appeared more derelict than Aberdeen, but its prosperous history was much more apparent.

I'll begin with the 7th Street Theatre:






The American Veterans Building










The Elks Hall


Emerson Manor




City Hall




Hoquiam Depot


Hoquiam's Post Office (Bigger than Aberdeen's)




The Masonic Hall








US Bank


The VFW Hall


Timberland Libraries - Hoquiam Branch (An extended Carnegie Library)


Saron Lutheran Church


Our Lady of Good Help Catholic Church


First Baptist Church


An old church (I believe it was Episcopal, but I don't know for certain)


The United Methodist Church


Immanuel Baptist Church








Alright, well that's all I got of Hoquiam!
Thanks for viewing!
