NAME: Kerriston
CLIMATE: may be snow in winter
COMMENTS: I last visited in 1980. No residents then. Kerriston is located 27 miles southeast of Seattle, about nine miles northeast of Hobart on the Raging River, along the Northern Pacific Railroad line.
REMAINS: Only some foundations remain along the Raging River.

On November 23, 1904, Kerriston Post Office opens. James W. Kerry is the first postmaster. The postmaster owns the Kerry Mill Company and the mail is distributed from the company store. On January 31, 1935, the post office closes. Submitted by: Ron McDonald

I found that there are two Kerriston's, one, inhabited, the other is the true ghost town site.  The inhabited Kerriston is nearest to Hobart, about 6 miles east, via 208th St., becoming SE 364th or Kerrison Rd. as you near residences. You get to the very end, and the road splits. There are gates across each side. The Raging River is probably just beyond and runs north (downstream) and east (upstream) from this area. If you can cross the river, Old Kerriston site would be about a mile north, on the east side of the river, just south of Kerriston creek confluence.
More history:  Kerriston (S.25;T.23N;R.7E) (470 27.29'N, 1210 51.43'W) - Kerriston was once an important logging center on the upper Raging River four miles west of Cedar Falls in central King County. It was named for A. S. Kerry, president of Kerry Timber Company, which cut timber in the early 1900s. A railroad station called Kerriston was established in 1900 but was moved six miles in 1904 when the original Kerriston station became known as Hemlock. Company Towns of the Pacific Northwest includes DuPont, the Seattle City Light villages of Cedar Falls, Newhalem and Diablo, Roche Harbor and McMillin, Black Diamond and Carbonado, Ronald and Roslyn, Trinity and Kerriston.
