Welcome to Port Angeles

Named Puerto de Nuestra Señora de los Angeles by Spanish explorer Francisco Eliza in 1791 (the name was later anglicized), Port Angeles entered history in 1862 when president Abraham Lincoln created a navy and military reserve around the natural harbor and made it the second planned city in the US (after Washington, DC). In a more drastic urban-planning move, in 1914 the city elevated its downtown streets, essentially by burying what was there and building on top of it. The underground tour is a highlight.
