Significance: The Storm King Inn stands on the south side of the Olympic Loop Highway (U.S. 101), sheltered by firs, spruce, and hemlock that only partially obscure a view of Lake Crescent. The lake, ten miles long and a mile wide, fills a 600-foot deep, crescent-shaped trough left by receding glaciers. Mountains rise sharply on all sides; Mount Storm King, at 4,500 feet, commands the highest point on the south side of the lake, with Pyramid Peak directly across from it on the north at 3,100 feet. According to local legends, natives of the Clallam tribe did not live in the area for fear of the "Schwwoshh," spirits who protected Lake Crescent and its neighbor, Lake Sutherland. The "Schwwoshh" did not deter Hudson Bay Company trappers, John Everett and John Sutherland, who discovered the two lakes and gave their names to them. Neither did they inhibit the settlers who began to homestead the area in the 1890s, after Lake Everett's name had been changed to Lake Crescent to reflect its shape.
