Photo of the Week: Built by Mr. Merritt in the 1880s, the Driftwood Hotel in Long Beach, WA was made from logs and driftwood Merritt found on the beach. Later purchased by Tom and Mollie Lyniff who continued adding driftwood and shipwreck parts to the structure, visitors in 1910 could enjoy a room and visit to the hotel’s saltwater bathhouse for just $2 a day!
