Chesaw is named after a Chinese man named Chee Saw, who, with his Indian wife, lived near an Indian trail fording Myers Creek. After the opening of the area to mining and homesteading, Chesaw quickly developed into a substantial mining town. By 1910, there were forty buildings and about 250 inhabitants.
Chesaw had two hotels, a large livery barn, a blacksmith shop, two department stores, one hardware store, a barber shop, post office, an assay office, three saloons, a bank, three grocery stores, and even fairgrounds.
A beautiful school was built in 1906, but by 1914 mining all but died out. In the ensuing years, the automobile led people to bigger towns, and Chesaw declined at an increasing reate. The big school house was abandoned in 1843 and torn down. Fire racked the town in 1950 and again in 1959.
A rustic western style tavern, located in the center of Chesaw WA, offers a variety of great beers on tap, bottled beer, wine, and great food. Here you can relax in a friendly atmosphere, meet old and new friends, enjoy a pool game, quench your thirst and fill your stomach with food, while listening to soft country music in the background.
