Skokomish Nation

Local Landscape

Olympus Manor Artist Colony
In 1889, pioneer John McReavy platted Union City on Hood Canal's south shore, neighbor to the Native American communities that had gathered where Hood Canal makes it's great bend, gathered now as the Skokomish Nation.

The generation that followed McReavy's drew inspiration from this landscape. Union society circulated around Olympus Manor, an artist colony that prospered until 1952 when the Manor burned.

Visitors continue to come for summers of sunshine and shellfish, for the return of the salmon. And also for the introspection of winter, to watch the herons out on the docks, motionless, at high tide.

Relax or play in whatever season you find.
