On behalf of all the residents and businesses in the City of DuPont, I am excited to welcome you to our community. Whether you live here or are planning a visit, I encourage you to enjoy all our City has to offer, including: quality schools, award winning events, miles of parks and trails, championship golf at The Home Course, and recognition as one of Washington's Safest Cities.
DuPont was one of the first areas settled in Washington and we are proud of our unique history. Businesses first came to DuPont in 1833 when the Hudson's Bay Company established Fort Nisqually as a trading post. Businesses continue thriving in DuPont today, including: Amazon, Intel, State Farm, Better Business Bureau, Patriots Landing, Washington State Golf Association, Pacific Northwest Golf Association, and many more.
If you are looking to grow your business or relocate, I invite you to consider DuPont. We are a growing community and partner with businesses looking to develop on our hundreds of acres of available land with sweeping views of Puget Sound and easy access to I-5. Call us any time and take advantage of the resources on our webpage, as well through the DuPont Business Association, Commercial Owners Association, and Pierce County Economic Development Board.
DuPont is close to Joint Base Lewis-McChord, both in proximity and spirit. We have a strong connection with the military and enjoy welcoming new Soldiers, Airmen, and their families. There is never a shortage of festivals, events, and community activities. From our restaurants, summer concerts, scenic walking and biking trails, and growing downtown, there is always something to do in DuPont and information is posted on our online community calendar.
You will find the City of DuPont has tremendous natural beauty and a welcoming spirit. We wish you and your family an enjoyable, active, and rewarding stay.
