Despite its designation as the location of Washington State's worst mass murder, the Wah Mee Club is essentially invisible, non-existent, deceased.

Club EntranceIts entrance doors have been padlocked and tagged with graffiti. The opaque glass bricks that front the entrance are covered in a thick layer of dirt and grime.

Police, clandestinely enforcing a gambling tolerance policy, kept the Wah Mee Club alive for years.

The Wah Mee Club may no longer exist, but what happened at the Club is a brutally horrific piece of Pacific Northwest history.
