Gig Harbor Tidbits
Gig Harbor, a name of a bay on Puget Sound, also happens to be a city name as well. Gig Harbor, the city, calls itself as the gateway to the Olympic Peninsula. The US Census Bureau reported that on April 1, 2010, the city's estimated population was around 7,136 residents. By July 1, 2018, the numbers increased to 10,422, making a 46.0% change on its total population.
Because of Gig Harbor's proximity to other state and city parks, the city has become a popular choice for tourists. Plus, Gig Harbor has a historic waterfront that also contains restaurants and shops for tourists and travelers to visit, which is why the city is now a known tourist destination for many.
Gig Harbor is located near State Route 16, roughly 6 miles from Interstate 5 until the Tacoma Narrows Bridge. New routes are being added to connect the city to other key destinations. In fact, in 2007, the Tacoma Narrows Bridge was affixed a second span to accommodate more vehicles. Hence, from Tacoma to Gig Harbor will only take less than 20 minutes, and from Seattle, Gig Harbor can be reached in no more than an hour.
Historically, the city came to be when Captain Charles Wilkes brought his captain's gig, a small boat, during the 1840s. There was a heavy storm and he landed on the harbor for shelter. When Wilkes published a map of area in 1841, he gave the place a name, which he called Gig Harbor.
In 1867, Gig Harbor was starting to become a busy town when Samuel Jerisich came to area, and brought a few companions. By 1888, Alfred M. Burnham officially incorporated the areas together into a small fishing town.
Fast forward to July 12, 1946, which is the date Gig Harbor turned into a city. By this time, it is still known for fishing, boat manufacturing, and logging. The city's economy continued to flourish especially when the Tacoma Narrows Bridge was constructed in 1940.
Prior to building of the bridge, Gig Harbor was detached from Tacoma and Seattle and the city could not be accessed through cars or horse-drawn carriages. Well, there was a way, but one would have to take a lengthy and grueling trip through the narrow passageways of the Puget Sound and Hammersly Inlet.
As this time, the primary and only probable way to get to Gig Harbor was via a steamship. It was in 1836 when steamships started to proliferate the Puget Sound area. This eventually became the Puget Sound mosquito fleet. In this place, there was a myriad of transportation companies operating passenger boats and shipping boats on Puget Sound and on the neighboring waterways. This mode of transportation continued on until the 1930s.
However, when the Tacoma Narrows Bridge collapsed soon after it was constructed, Gig Harbor was serviced by a state-run ferry until the completion of a second bridge. Up to this day, this ferry dock can still be seen by the southeastern portion of Harborview Drive. The area was also transformed into a public park, where locals and tourists can enjoy the picturesque view of Mount Rainier.
