Ohop Bob was built in 1914 by the Tacoma Auto Club. It was operating as a restaurant, serving a wonderful chicken dinner, until the early 1960s.

These two postcards are an early look at the building (in 1922 a second story was added). The first photo shows a brand new building and the spectacular view of Mount Rainier across Ohop Valley.

At the far left, Torger Perterson’s house is visible and you can see hay stacked, ready to come in (before the introduction of bailing hay).
