White people started settling in the Lyman era in the 1870s, with hunters followed by loggers and stump farmers. I haven't been able to find the age of the orignal Lyman Tavern, but it appears to have been on the same location as the current one for many years before burning down on the morning of Feb. 9th, 1950. This is one of the more enjoyable bar stops along the Cascade Loop.
Est. 1950? (current building)
