Overview


Following the great fire of 1912 through the “Daddy Train” era, Seaside grew as a holiday and summer resort. The opening of the Oregon Coast Highway from Astoria to California in the late 1920s and of Wolf Creek Highway (Sunset Highway) in the late 1930s made
Seaside accessible from Portland by automobile. Reconstruction of the boardwalk, the era of the big bands, saltwater swimming pools, and lumber riots kept Seaside in the news. Seaside survived the crash of the stock market, and World War II brought about an era of reconstruction, along with the Miss Oregon pageant. Seaside: 1920–1950 documents the city’s growth and the people and businesses that helped it flourish.
