Site history and project background

Ben and Isabel Phillips moved to Port Angeles in 1914 and soon established the First National Bank of Port Angeles. In the mid-1930s, the Phillips purchased a 70-acre farm including the land where the Beach Lake Site now resides. After four generations of Phillips Family ownership,  the Coastal Watershed Institute purchased  the Beach Like Conservation Area land from the Phillips  family with aid from federal and local grants.
