Fort Nisqually, a Hudson's Bay Company outpost built in 1833, was the first European settlement on Puget Sound. With a diverse work force of American, English, French Canadian, Hawaiian, Irish, Native American, and Scottish laborers, Fort Nisqually was a bustling center of trade that expanded into a large-scale agricultural enterprise.

Today, in the Living History Museum, volunteers and staff in period clothing demonstrate the crafts of the 19th Century and engage visitors in historic-feeling dialogue. This amazing place steps the visitor back in time to experience life in Washington Territory during the fur trade era. Check the website for admission and operating hours information.
