Touhey, Wa

In 1909 it was named Byron.  Renamed Touhey and established on May 21, 1912.  Discontinued on april 30, 1914 and the mail went to Mansfield.  The siding was named "Touhey", but when entered on the post office application it was misinterpreted as "Tonkey".  The office never operated long enough for the error to be corrected.

Looking southwest down the tracks.  Date of photo unknown.

Same view as above.  2015 photo.
