Union's Historic Dalby Waterwheel


Edwin Dalby built the Dalby Waterwheel in 1922 with the assistance of his father, William Dalby, who were early pioneers of Union. The waterwheel was the first hydroelectric plant in the Hood Canal area creating electricity for the main house and 13 cabins until the 1940s when the PUD brought services to the property.

After the PUD brought services to the property, the waterwheels electricity-producing days ended but the wheel continued to turn throughout the years providing enjoyment to passersby from all over the world. T
he Dalby Waterwheel has been featured in many publications through the years and the historical value of the waterwheel is evident.
