The Kingfish building was built in 1902 with old growth clear fir beams and thick cedar siding. Its easy access to waterways, verdant farmlands and orchards made its location one of the most desirable on the island. As the population of West Sound grew, the building transformed into the West Sound General Store, the center of community life. Today, it continues to be a place where locals and visitors alike gather for a good meal and comfortable stay.
