Longview, Washington, is located in Southwest Washington state and is often referred to as Kelso Longview, with the city of Kelso directly east of Longview.

It is near the famous Mt. St. Helens volcano. The Cowlitz Indian tribe, which is still federally recognized, has its headquarters in Longview, Washington. Longview was the area of Mount Coffin, a burial ground for the local Indian tribe.

In 1918, Robert Long, a timber expert from Missouri, moved his entire operation to the West Coast and picked Longview, WA.  The Long-Bell Lumber Company bought a huge expanse of wooded timberland in the Longview Kelso area.  With two large mills, a staggering 14,000 employees were needed to run them efficiently, which was more than the neighboring areas could provide, so Long planned out the city’s building in 1921 to support a population of 50,000 to provide laborers for the mills.

Kelso Washington was named after Peter Crawford, a Scottish surveyor. Kelso was often referred to as Little Chicago because of the many brothels and taverns servicing the rough and rowdy loggers who would come into town looking for fights, women, liquor, and gambling. The FBI finally forced the mayor of Kelso to shut many of those establishments down, with the last one closing in the mid-1960s. The Longview-Kelso area is still supported mostly by wood products.
