Grapeview Port District #2
The Port of Grapeview is a municipally owned corporation to create economic development opportunities within all the areas you can locate on this website. Created in 1923, the Port developed at McLane Cove and Oak Passage two piers with small warehouses and floats for our many fruit and grape growers to ship with the mosquito fleet. Along with a few private landings, this was also the major form of public transportation. These facilities disappeared along with the fleet as roads came to the area. In 1960 and 1968 the Port built a two lane boat launch ramp for recreational and commercial use. In 1994 the Port added a twenty space parking lot. In 1988 the Port purchased its first commercial property next to the Post Office.
The Port Commission meets on the third Tuesday of each month at 7:00 pm. in Grapeview's Horton Community Center. The public is welcome and has three opportunities placed in the agenda for their comments and questions.
The mailing address is PO Box 3, Grapeview, WA 98546.
