Shelton's About Us

About Us

Shelton, nestled in a moderate alpine and marine setting, is located in Mason County on Puget Sound's

Oakland Bay and is the southeastern gateway to the Olympic Peninsula. Mason County is one of the fastest growing counties in Washington, hosting both Hood Canal and Puget Sound waters.

Shelton is located in a wonderfully diverse setting, serving the Skokomish and Squaxin Island Indian nations and a growing Latino population.

Shelton, the county seat, is a community of over 9,000 that is diversified and offers unique opportunities. Industries closely tied to the surrounding woods and water are lumber, evergreens, shellfish, and Christmas tree farming. In addition, Shelton has developed a strong aerospace support industry.
