The ancient village of Tse-whit-zen was one of at least 33 ancestral villages of the Klallam people on both sides of the Strait of Juan de Fuca. At first just a seasonal camp, Tse-whit-zen grew to a year-round village on prime land at the base of Ediz Hook. The same sheltered harbor drew the state to Port Angeles to build a dry dock. Metal walls still bracket the site of the canceled dry-dock project, center right.
