Primary industries were logging and the mining of mercury. In pioneer days, it was named by Charles Hopkinson, who operated a water-powered sawmill at the mouth of Rainey (Rene) Creek, which enters the Cowlitz River. There appears to be no record of the name origin. At one time, the place was called Fulton. The submerged town of Kosmos is at the upper end of Riffe Lake, the reservoir behind the Mossyrock Dam along the Cowlitz River. less
