"State of Washington" was sister sip to the "Fairhaven" which was destroyed by fire in 1918. Both were built in Tacoma in 1889.The State of Washington operated for a number of years between Seattle and Bellingham Bay and then between Seattle and Everett. She was sold in 1913 to the Dalles-Columbia line for passenger and freight service on the Columbia; eventually she was sold to become a towing vessel and on June 23, 1919 while towing Standard Oil Barge 93 from Astoria to Portland she was completely demolished by a boiler explosion. South Hill is in the middle ground behind the ship and Fairhaven and Southern Railroad cars are visible on the shore.
