I remember my dad taking us there as little kids. There were all kinds of little grindstone remnants scattered along the beach that we picked up and took with us.

Good times!

Dominique King

I do remember seeing Grindstone City as a kid, so it was really interesting to learn a bit more about it now.

Assisted Living Seattle

Yeah! I love this place.. :)

My wife and I can vouch for the excellent ice cream. Makes fine eating while sitting on the bench in front of the store.

Dominique King

We liked doing that as well, Bruce. I'd love to get back up there for some more ice cream this summer :)

Ann Mills

I am a descendent of the Peer family. Are there any Peer's left in the area?

Dominique King

Hi Ann...sorry to say that I don't know the answer to that question.
