CITY OF SHELTON

Shelton is the westernmost city on Puget Sound with a population of over 9,000. Formerly called Sheltonville, Shelton's marine and timber heritage have shaped today's delightful town. A short drive from Shelton and its convenient amenities, you will reach Hood Canal - the only true saltwater fjord in the lower U.S. - on the edge of Olympic National Park and Forest. The area is trademarked for its turn of the century architecture, mountain trails, waterfalls and waterways/tidelands, and spanning vistas.
