Where Water is Wealth and the Climate Healthiest in the World
In the 1950's civic boosters advertised Sequim -- Where Water is Wealth -- and lured by the sign and the climate, visitors became permanent residents and the Town began to grow.
A 1962 newspaper article extolling the healthy climate of the community lured thousands to the area. They soon discovered it was a better place to retire than to make a living. Real estate companies flourished. Farmers short-platted their lands and soon homes were planted where dairy cattle had roamed the irrigated fields.
