  • Description
  • Neilton is three miles south of Quinault Lake on McCalla Creek in north central Grays Harbor County. When a post office was established in 1910 the settlement had been called Jonesville for Neil A. Jones, an early settler who established the first store in the area. Postal authorities rejected that name because of a town by the same name in Klickitat County. The applicants switched to the storekeeper's first name, which was accepted.
