About This City
The S'Klallam tribe had inhabited the region prior to the arrival of the first Europeans. S'Klallam means "the strong people". The band of S'Klallam Indians disbanded into their own individual federally recognized tribes in the early 1900s. The local Tribe is the Jamestown S'Klallam Tribe named after one of their early leaders, Lord James Balch. According to other tales the town Sequim in S'Klallam means "a place for going to shoot" which represents the abundance of game and wildlife of the area. Both Manuel Quimper and George Vancouver explored the region's coast in the 1790s.).
The first European settlers arrived in the Dungeness Valley in the 1850s, settling nearby Dungeness, Washington. While the lands along the river became fertile farmlands, the remainder of the area remained arid prairie, known as "the desert". Irrigation canals first brought water to the prairie in the 1890s, allowing the expansion of farmlands.
Sequim lies within the rain shadow of the Olympic Mountains and receives on average less than 16 inches (410 mm) of rain per year about the same as Los Angeles, California and has given itself the nickname of Sunny Sequim. Yet the city is fairly close to some of the wettest temperate rainforests of the contiguous United States
