Presents this geocache highlighting a bit of the history of our beautiful city and the surrounding valley.

This geocache is part of the Sequim Centennial History Challenge series.


KNUTSEN FAMILY FARM


This house ordered from the Sears, Roebuck and Co., was purchased through their mail-order Modern Homes program. It was the family home of Peter Knutsen who passed away in 1937.
Mr. Knutsen was born in Norway, Dec 12, 1865 and was one of four brothers who immigrated to this country in the early 1880s. Peter and one of his brothers traveled to the Pacific Coast. After originally residing in the Port Angeles area, they took homestead land near the Elwah River besides owning several lots in Sequim. Mr. Knutsen worked as a steamboat fireman running between Seattle and ports of western Alaska before turning to farming. Mr. Knutsen settled in Sequim permanently at this farm where he resided for 37 years until his death.

Please be respectful of this private property. Although it is unoccupied, please only park at the edge of the driveway. The cache is located at the edge of the property with permission of the current owners.
