Rare Roundhouse Photo

Here is a rare photo of the Roundhouse at Rosario Resort circa 1918-20. Anchored in Cascade Bay is the Moran's newly built ship the Sanwan. This is also one of the few photos that shows the lumber storage area for the sawmill along the waterfront (to the right of the Sanwan). Like the Moran Shipyards, a small gage railway system moved lumber on and off the dock. Today, original railway ties are still seen at low tide and Roundhouse is one of our most popular suites!
