J. Stout, proprietor of a hotel "Sea View House", developed over 153 acres as a resort community. First named Stout's, then Ocean View, then North Pacific Beach, he finally chose Sea View. The hotel burned in 1892 and Stout never recovered.
Sea View continued to grow and became very popular as stop on the IR&N railroad. The name appears as Seaview on most maps and is that used by the post office when it was finally established.
Seaview currently has one of the three IR&N stations still in existence. The area is still popular today with a beautiful, formal, beach access road.
