Port Angeles Underground was where the entire city originally lived. In the early 1900s, Port Angeles was known to stink due to its sewage accumulations. Due to this, the streets of the downtown area was raised to about 14 feet (4 meters), leaving the sewage underground. Today, this underground region is different, and can be toured by visitors who gain insight into the city's history and the street raising process. The tour is provided by the city's Deputy Mayor himself. A lot of the old materials and locations can still be found at Port Angeles Underground, which is an interesting place to visit.
