The DuPont Company established a town in 1906 as a means to support the community of workers and their families that were employed at the company powder factory. Resident families who first moved to the area colloquially dubbed the community "The Village."
DuPont's roots extend deep into the history of Washington State and the development of our fledgling nation. When the British-owned Hudson's Bay Company initially arrived in the northwest territory in the early 1830s, they established Fort Nisqually in what is now DuPont, Washington. The trade center operated for several decades exchanging furs, agriculture and other northwest goods across the developing United States. The Hudson's Bay Company is still in operation today-350 years after its founding-and the company is active in parts of the northern U.S. and Canada. The Powder Works Explosives factory facilitated the growth of the area, and the town eventually developed into the historic city it is today.
The DuPont Museum is located in this first planned community, and is a popular attraction for visitors. The Museum features award-winning displays of early northwest life, and proudly shares its history and recent recognition of being added to the National Register of Historic Places, where it remains the only company town in Washington State with nearly all of its original 110 historic homes intact. Amidst its homes are 19th-century amenities that seem commonplace in modern-day neighborhoods, as well. These include a general store, a hotel, club house, walking trails, and parks that were all added into the original planning for the community. See more
Finding an apartment in DuPont that accepts your pet may not be easy, but it’s very possible. Keep in mind, most of the time you’ll have to pay a premium for bringing your dog along in your new apartment. Some apartments require you to pay monthly pet rent, others will ask for a non-refundable pet fee or a refundable pet deposit.
While landlords and property management companies have varying pet policies, most of them limit the number of dogs you can bring to your apartment and include breed and weight restrictions.
If your pet falls under some of the restrictions outlined in the pet policy, it’s still worth asking the landlord if they can make an exception for your dog. Preparing a pet resume ahead of time could help you build the case for your furry friend. Make sure to include information on behavioral training your dog went through over the years and proof of vaccinations. If you can, include references from your former landlord and/or neighbors.
