The Valley of the Dungeness lies at the northern end of the Olympic Peninsula, in the extreme northwest corner of the United States. It spreads in an alluvial fan from the Dungeness River gorge to the scalloped beaches of the Strait of Juan de Fuca.
The history of the Valley stems from the River. Ensign Manuel Quimper, exploring the Strait of Juan de Fuca for Spain, sighted New Dungeness on July 4, 1790.
The following day he spent trading with the Indians and replenishing the ship's water supply from the Dungeness River. He named the bluff behind the Dungeness Spit "Punta de Santa cruz" and the bay, "Puerto de Quimper."
