Nahcotta settled in the year 1890 by J.A. Morehead. Morehead named the town after a local Indian chief and the area that is now rather rural was at one time, the go-to northern terminal of the Ilwaco Railway and Navigation Company. The narrow gauge railroad which came through this terminal ran all the way from the town of Ilwaco, and a few years after, from the town of Megler, through the southwestern portion of the Pacific County, all the way up through the Long Beach Peninsula into Nahcotta and then back, once every day and this railroad remained in operation from the year 1889 to the year 1930. Now, however, the town of Nahcotta is just happy to be able to enjoy some peace and quiet after its heyday.
