Dryad, WashingtonPhotos, maps and news from Dryad, Washington.Updated October 27, 2017.

Dryad is a rural unincorporated community between Doty and Adna in Washington State. It is one of many former lumber towns that sprang up on the Willapa Harbor Line (Chehalis, Washington to South Bend, Washington) of the Northern Pacific Railway. The community, formerly known as Salal, was originally located two miles south of the present location. The community moved when the Leudinghaus brothers of Chehalis built a sawmill at the present site. The name Dryad was supplied by Northern Pacific Railway officials around 1890 at the suggestion of Willam C. Albee, who was superintendent of the Pacific Division of the NP. In mythology, a dryad was a wood nymph. Albee figured that a dryad might find itself right at home living in the local fir and cedar trees. Rainbow Falls State Park is near Dryad.
