Detroit is a vanished town near Grapeview, on the west shore of Cases Inlet, in east central Mason County. It boomed in 1889 with Detroit Land & Improvement Company, backed by Ladd & Tilton Bank of Portland. There were plans to build a portage railroad between Cases Inlet and Hood Canal, but the town did not develop. The post office name was changed to Grapeview when it moved a short distance to the south. The project was to become as big as its Michigan namesake.
