Similar to Allyn, Shelton was once served by steamboats part of the collective Puget Sound Mosquito Fleet. Traveling down Hammersley Inlet on the fast moving tidal currents, these ships delivered supplies and mail to the community. Tugboats still ride these tides to deliver wood products and barges of sand throughout Puget Sound.
Referring to itself as "The Gateway to the Olympics," Shelton's landscape is dominated by impressive and colossal cedar, spruce, and fir trees. With proximity to Spencer Lake, a stellar view of the sound, and lush wilderness to explore, Shelton is the perfect place to escape from it all.
