Touhey, WA 1912-1950 

site visit 2012

 
Touhey was on the Great Northern branch line 5 miles southeast of Mansfield in Douglas County. It had its own post office established in 1912 but discontinued in 1914, getting its mail from Mansield after it closed. Touhey was abandoned in 1951. 

It was also known as Tonkey.  The railroad siding is named Tuohey but when entered on the post office application it was misinterpreted. The office did not operate long enough for the error to be corrected.

The grain elevator at Touhey burned to the ground during a wildfire in July 2012.
