The Historic Pacific Highway
in Washington

Main Menu

Tilley Road south of the Olympia Airport

Until the 1920's the Pacific Highway was a patchwork of old county roads and wagon trails. The roads of the mid to late teens were not always maintained and the weather could make some parts impassable until the summer months. So travelers had to take alternate routes to bypass any obstacles. Tilley road was most likely one of these alternates.
