The Future Terminus of the Hunt System of Railroads and the Future Point for Shipping the Coal and Wheat of Washington
D. C. JOHNSON & COMPANY HAVE:
This addition comprises 40 acres joining the Grays Harbor Company's Holdings on the west. It is distant from Broadway and Summit avenue, the principal streets of Grays Harbor and from the Post office less than one-quarter mile. It lies comparatively level and is considered by far the choicest property near the new city, and is sure to bring large profits to the investor. Lots will be sold without reserve on the following terms: one-third cash, balance 6 and 12 months. All lots in this addition are cleared of timber and at a slight expense are ready for building. The recent contract with G. W. Hunt of Walla Walla, which is now recorded, is an assurance to the outside public that Grays Harbor will be the coal and wheat shipping point of Washington. Plats can be seen at our office at Grays Harbor. For further information address: D. C. Johnson & Co., Grays Harbor, Washington.
