Aberdeen (Washington) is a city located in the United States in Grays Harbor County, Washington. The population was 16,896 in the 2010 census. The city is the economic center of Grays Harbor County, on the border with the cities of Hokiam and Cosmopolis. Aberdeen is sometimes referred to as a "gateway to the Olympic Peninsula". Aberdeen was named after a local salmon factory to reflect the Scottish fishing port which bears the name of Aberdeen, and because it is also located at the mouth of two rivers (Aberdeen, Scotland bordered by the River Don to the north and the River Dee to the south). Aberdeen was founded by Ben Samuel in 1884 and founded on May 12, 1890. Although it became the largest and most famous city in The Port of Grays, Aberdeen lagged behind nearby Hokiam and Cosmopolis in its early years. When A.J. West built the city's first sawmill in 1894, the other two municipalities were in business for several years. Aberdeen and its neighbours competed to be a North Pacific railway station, but instead of ending up in one of the existing mill towns, the railway was carved across Cosmopolis and headed west to Ocosta. The citizens of Hokiam and Aberdeen together built a catalyst; in 1895, the North Pacific Route Line reached Aberdeen.
