History and Culture
Browns Point has an amazing and rich history, starting from its simple roots. The area used to be a part of the Puyallup Indian Reservation and fog was such a problem, shipping to Browns Point was nearly impossible. That’s why it was necessary to build a lighthouse. But it was no easy task. The fog bell was built in Philadelphia before Washington became a state in 1889. Then it was brought in by ship, and then attached to a two-story structure. A contract keeper named Oscar Brown was hired to row his boat to the point each week just to clean the glass, trim the wick, and refuel the tank. The Browns Point “Bake,” known as “The Original Salmon Bake” is a historical treasure off the waters, attracting thousands of people with fresh salmon dinners, live entertainment and a beer garden. Visitors flock to Browns Point to see the Lighthouse Park and tour the historic 1903 restored Light keepers Cottage and Boat House museums and learn more about the area history, including an exhibit recounting the life of Jerry Meeker and maritime and lighthouse history.
