Our Community

Grays Harbor County is one of 39 counties in the State of Washington. As of 2000, the population of Grays Harbor County was 67,194. The county seat is located at Montesano and its largest city is Aberdeen. On May 7, 1792, Boston fur trader, Robert Gray crossed the bar into the bay he called “Bullfinch Harbor,” but which later cartographers would label “Chehalis Bay,” then “Grays Harbor.” Grays Harbor County takes its name from the broad, shallow bay that drains five rivers in southwest Washington, and that bay was aptly named after its discoverer, Captain Robert Gray. The harbor’s dense forests of spruce, hemlock, cedar, and douglas fir attracted loggers and mill operators and at the turn of the twentieth century, communities such as Aberdeen, Hoquiam, Cosmopolis, and Montesano flourished. More than a hundred years later, the county has diversified in order to exist without logging, milling, and fishing as the mainstays.
