Claquato Church

The church is all that is left of Claquato, founded by Louis H. Davis in 1852, one of the earliest settlements in Lewis County, and the first county seat. The church among the oldest in Washington, stands on a hill beside an old cemetery. It was built as a Protestant Episcopal Church in 1856. The entire tower framing is mortise and tenon work of high quality; even the lookouts supporting the roof projection on the gables are mortised and wedged into the end rafters. The church, standing upon its original site, is still in use.
