Longbranch sits on Filucy Bay, a sheltered harbor that served the steamers and sternwheelers of the Mosquito Fleet. Over the years, it has been a popular stop for boaters. In the 1950s, it was a common weekend sight to see 100 boats tied up at the Filucy Bay harbor in Longbranch. Connected to the mainland by the Tacoma Narrows Bridge, life in Longbranch offers peace, tranquility, and a gentler way of life. During the early decades of the 1900s, lumbermen, farmers, and fishermen settled in Longbranch, carving out a life in the waterfront wilderness. The Longbranch Improvement Club was an organization of settlers intent on enriching the lives of Longbranch residents. Hosting baseball games, Halloween parties, and New Years Eve dances were some of the ways the Club brought the people together. The Longbranch Improvement Club would eventually purchase land that would be designated for schools, parks, and athletic use. « Show less
