Final demolition of Silver King has begun

By SCOTT D. JOHNSTON

Demolition of the Silver King Motel at the southern end of Ocean Shores entered its final phase last week as heavy equipment began tearing down the decaying structure. By Monday, the entire structure was gone.

Owned by the Quinault Nation and located between Damon Point and the Coastal Interpretive Center at 1070 Discovery Avenue in Ocean Shores, the 54-unit building has been closed since 2009.

Tribal officials have not said what the future of the property will be.

Demolition is being performed by Anderson Environmental Contracting of Kelso.
