The Rooster Rock Cannery once existed on the west side of Rooster Rock in the small bay between Tunnel Point and Rooster Rock. The Cannery was built by Antone Fastabend for Samuel Elmore, who had a large Cannery business in Astoria, Oregon. Because of constant silting of the bay where the cannery was located, it eventually was forced to move to Ellsworth on the Washington shore. The pilings to the left of Rooster Rock are remnants of a fish wheel operation that can be seen in some other photos of this site.
