  • Lewis County History

    Lewis County was created on December 19, 1845, by the provisional government of Oregon Territory, named after the pioneer explorer, Meriwether Lewis.

    Visually, Lewis County was once so large geographically that is has become known as the “mother of all counties” – spanning all the land west of the Cowlitz River and north to present-day Sitka, Alaska.

Sam McReynolds:  "Finding My Dad in World War II"

Sam McReynolds will take us on his research journey, "Finding My Dad in World War II".
“I saw my father infrequently as I grew up.  When I was an adult, he passed away before I could get to know him well.  I knew he was in World War II, and I grew up learning everything I could about that war as a way of learning about him.  My presentation is about my trip to Europe to follow where he went in the war as he drove Tank Destroyers for Patton, and to try to learn more about him and his life. It is about history, genealogy, technology, and French Wine.”

Sam McReynolds is LCGS President.

Visitors are always welcome!

The meeting is at 7:00 pm, with doors open at 6:45 at St. John's Lutheran Church,
2190 Jackson Hwy, Chehalis, WA  98532
