Historyedit

Ocean Shore Limited railroad at Seaside, Oregon ca 1910 The Gilbert House in Seaside

The Clatsop were an historic Native American tribe that had a village named Ne-co-tat in their Chinook language in this area Indigenous peoples had long inhabited the coastal area

About January 1, 1806, a group of men from the Lewis and Clark Expedition built a salt-making cairn at the site later developed as Seaside The city was not incorporated until February 17, 1899, when coastal resort areas were being settled8 It is about 79 miles by car northwest of Portland, Oregon, a major population center9

In 1912, Alexandre Gilbert 1843–1932 was elected Mayor of Seaside Gilbert was a French immigrant, a veteran of the Franco Prussian War 1870-1871 After living in San Francisco, California and Astoria, Oregon, Gilbert moved to Seaside where he had a beach cottage built in 1885 Gilbert was a real estate developer who donated land to the City of Seaside for its one-and-a-half-mile-long Promenade, or "Prom," along the Pacific beach

In 1892 he added to his beach cottage Nearly 100 years later, what was known as the Gilbert House was operated commercially as the Gilbert Inn since the mid-1980s Both it and Gilbert's eponymous "Gilbert Block" office building on Broadway still survive

Tsunami inundation zoneedit

Part of Seaside is located in a tsunami inundation zone Among other preparation, the City of Seaside has embarked on a program in which residents above the zone are asked to volunteer to store within their homes barrels of medical supplies, water purification systems, emergency rations, tarps, and radios, with each barrel having enough supplies to last 20 individuals for at least 3 days As of January 2017, there are 119 barrels within volunteer households and a waiting list of interested households12

Seismologists estimate that there is a one in three chance that Seaside will be hit by an earthquake and tsunami within the next fifty years13 On Tues Nov 8, 2016, Seaside citizens voted 65% to 35% to issue 997 million in bonds to move the remaining three schools out of the tsumani inundation zone14
