Marker Name: Seal Rock
Marker Text: In 1890 J.W. Brassfield set up a post office to serve Seal Rock and Beaver Creek. Brassfield also ran a hotel there. It stood by the highway, which cut through a shell mound or midden. The town was named Seal Rock because many seals once made their home there.
Seal Rock was a small resort in 1909.
One of Seal Rock’s early residents was Mrs. George Ryan, known as the “Vegetable Lady.”
