The Lake Superior & Puget Sound Company's welltraveled president located Tenino, Newaukem, Olequa, and Kalama, Washington, but at Kalama it was merely a formality: two dozen buildings occupied the site when he arrived. Aside from blessing the engineers' choice, his principal contribution at Kalama was a hotel and restaurant, which he named Kazano House after a local Indian leader.
