Named and platted in 1881 by Jonathon L. Stout, the 154 acres known as Seaview currently has a year-round population of about 750 residents. The town is sandwiched between Ilwaco and Long Beach but has character very distinct from its two neighbors. Walking around Seaview, traditional summer retreat for the Portland elite, its easy to feel yourself transported back to a simpler time when neighbors visited on porches and shared campfires on the beach. A walking tour of Seaview's side streets offers visitors a glimpse into the past. This is one of the best preserved of any of the summer resorts in the Pacific Northwest.
