Sesqualitchew Creek Trail in DuPont


More than 5,000 years ago the  DuPont area was settled by the Nisqually Tribe before becoming the first European settlement in the region. Rich in history, DuPont is home to the original site of Fort Nisqually, a Hudson’s Bay Company Trading Post. In 1906 it became a solid company town for DuPont Powder Works, manufacturing dynamite. The company left a lasting mark - not to mention its name, on the city, with a unique dynamite train and other city artifacts at the DuPont Historical Museum.
