Salsbury Point

Charming waterfront near Hood Canal Bridge. The floating bridge will open occasionally to allow submarines to pass or to relieve pressure from high winds on Hood Canal. In either case, keep an eye out for the dark Trident submarines as they slip by, or brace for a rip-roaring storm.

Natural History: Original occupants of this area were Chemakum, Skokomish, Suquamish, and Clallam tribes, who shared hunting, fishing, and gathering rights here. After European settlers moved into the area, a sawmill was built at what is now the town of Port Gamble. It was owned by the Puget Mill Co., which employed mostly local Native American workers.
