Rail History of Oregon: It Changed Everything
Some say that Ben Holladay built Seaside House so he could cash in on the visitors coming to the beach, mainly by train. Others say Ben Holladay worked to get train access to the beach so he would have customers for his resort. Although train access to Seaside ceased to exist in 1952 Ben Holladay, Seaside and trains are forever connected.
