about Aberdeen

Aberdeen is a city located in Grays Harbor County, Washington. As of the 2000 census, the city had a total population of 16,461. It is sometimes called the "Gateway to the Olympic Peninsula" or the "Birthplace of Grunge."

Aberdeen is the homeport of the tall ship Lady Washington, a reproduction of a smaller vessel used by explorer Capt. Robert Gray.

Aberdeen geography

Aberdeen is located at the confluence of the Chehalis and Wishkah rivers, which form Grays Harbor, and at the intersection of U.S. Highway 101 (also called the Pacific Coast Highway) and U.S. Highway 12.

The city is located at 46°58'33" North, 123°49'7" West (46.975833, -123.818669).

According to the United States Census Bureau, the city has a total area of 31.5 km² (12.2 mi²). 27.5 km² (10.6 mi²) of it is land and 4.0 km² (1.5 mi²) of it is water. The total area is 12.73% water.

Aberdeen history

The early settlers who came to the eastern edge of Grays Harbor in the 1880s called the place Wishkah after the nearby river. But some objected, and the city was eventually renamed for a local salmon cannery. That "Aberdeen" in Scottish means "the meeting of two rivers" — in this case, the Wishkah and the Chehalis — was a coincidental poetic touch.

Though the largest and best known of the three cities on Grays Harbor, Aberdeen lagged behind neighbors Hoquiam and Cosmopolis in the early years. When A.J. West built the future city's first sawmill in 1884, the other two municipalities had already been in business for several years.

Aberdeen was officially incorporated on May 12, 1890. On October 16, 1903, a massive fire swept through the city's commercial district, destroying 140 buildings and killing four people.

Famous Aberdonians include grunge rocker Kurt Cobain (technically born in nearby Hoquiam), painter Robert Motherwell, Nobel-winning physicist Douglas Osheroff, photographer Lee Friedlander, choreographer Trisha Brown and novelist Robert Cantwell.
