McReavy House

Status: Still Standing

Year Listed: 2007

Location: Mason County

Constructed in 1890, the McReavy House is a Victorian mansion sitting atop a hill in Union overlooking the Hood Canal.  Believed to be one of the earliest extant houses on the canal, it was home to John McReavy.  McReavy prospered as the principal lumberman on Hood Canal from 1870-1893, served in the Territorial Legislature, and was a signer of Washington’s Declaration of Statehood.  McReavy played a key role in Union City’s development and was engaged in the construction of the hotel, wharf, sawmill, store, Masonic Lodge and church.  The panic of 1893 left McReavy only his house.
