Winlock History

Winlock is a small town with a population of about 1,200.
Located in Washington State along the I-5 corridor, it is
 approximately half way between Seattle and Portland, OR.

Winlock became the first incorporated city in Lewis County on
February 28, 1883; originally known as Grand Prairie, it was
named in honor of General Winlock W. Miller.

With the  Northern Pacific Railway running close to town,
Winlock grew and it quickly became a bustling logging & lumbering
town. When the lumbering trades declined, Finnish
immigrants brought about the thriving poultry industry.

In 1921, Winlock celebrated the first annual Poultry and Egg Day
to commemorate the importance of this industry to the town.
Egg Days are an event held every year in the month of June.

To demonstrate the community's pride, a big egg was fashioned
from canvas by town boosters in 1923. A plastic version replaced
it in 1944 and the first fiberglass version replaced it in the 1960's.
The 1990's fiberglass version of the egg is twelve feet long,
 weighs about 1,200 lbs. and proudly wears the Stars and Stripes.
