125 years of District history at your fingertips

We’ve come a long way since 1891, when we were a humble logging community with a population of 250 residents. Today, the District is home to an inclusive and supportive community with deep ties to our beautiful, natural setting... and it's one of the best places in the world to call home. Here's a quick snapshot of how we've grown and changed since 1891.
