Fort Nisqually was an important fur trading and farming post of the Hudson's Bay Company in the Puget Sound area of what is now DuPont, Washington and was part of the Hudson's Bay Company's Columbia Department. Today it is a living history museum located in Tacoma, Washington, USA, within the boundaries of Point Defiance Park. The Fort Nisqually Granary, moved along with the Factor's House from the original site of the second fort to this park, is a U.S. National Historic Landmark.
Fireboat No. 1 was built in 1929 for the Port of Tacoma by the Coastline Shipbuilding Company of Tacoma, Washington for US$148,000. She is 96 feet 6 inches (29.41 m) long with a 21-foot-6-inch (6.55 m) beam and a 6-foot (1.8 m) draft. Her seven water cannons have a capacity of 10,000 US gallons per minute (0.63 m3/s). Fireboat No. 1 is the only fireboat in U.S. history to protect a major port by herself for more than half a century.
