The building is on the Washington State Register of Historic Places and has a remarkable history dating back to 1901. The land was originally purchased and the building constructed by Elizabeth Margaret Turney Richards and went through many iterations over the ensuing years. It started as a general store and post office and Fire department office with a dance space upstairs for community socializing and at the beginning, had the only telephone on the Island. The ferry terminal used to be across the road from the Café, which made it even more of a gathering spot.
Over the years there were many owners with different ideas who made changes but it’s always been a gathering spot for locals to socialize and share food and drink. The Beach Store Café has a fascinating history which you can learn more about in the Lummi Island History Archives.
The Beach Store Café is truly a Lummi Island Treasure for over 120 years! See you there!
