Seabeck is a former mill town in Kitsap County, Washington, United States, on the Hood Canal.HistoryThe name Seabeck comes from the Twana /ɬqábaqʷ/, from /ɬ-/, "far", /qab/, "smooth, calm", and /-aqʷ/, "water".Seabeck was founded in 1857 by Marshall Blinn and William Adams, doing business as The Washington Mill Company. Their lumber was in such demand they built a second mill, then a shipyard to build boats to haul the lumber to California, which had high demand due to the California Gold Rush. Eventually, along with four saloons, the town had two general stores and two hotels. In 1876, there were over 400 people living in Seabeck. After decades of success, in the 1880s, the demand had eased, and most of the easily accessible trees had been harvested. In 1886 a spark from the ship Retriever started a fire that consumed both mills, along with other buildings. Rumors flew that the mills would not be re-built, so most residents moved to other towns with mills, notably Port Hadlock, turning Seabeck into a virtual ghost town.Seabeck is a mostly rural area, consisting primarily of a conference center across the road from the general store, coffee shop, antique store, a small cafe, and a pizza parlor. The Olympic View Marina is open and more information regarding moorage can be found at www.olympicviewmarina.com. Otherwise, there are houses and a now-closed elementary school that serviced the areas around Seabeck. The population was 1,015 at the 2010 census.
