Jefferson County, a land of forested mountains and seashores,
is located in the central portion of the Olympic Peninsula
in northwestern Washington. American settlers petitioned successfully
for a county government and the Oregon Territorial Legislature
proclaimed Jefferson a county December 22, 1852, shortly before
Washington Territory was established by Congress in 1853.
