According to other tales the town Sequim in S'Klallam means "a place for going to shoot" which represents the abundance of game and wildlife of the area. Both Manuel Quimper and George Vancouver explored the region's coast in the 1790s.Sequim was officially incorporated on October 31, 1913. For many decades small farms, mostly dairy farms, dotted the area around the small town.
