Archie Binns was born near Port Ludlow, but spent a good part of his life near Shelton out towards Arcadia. I didn’t notice it until now, but that area (east of Shelton) still bears the mark of Binns’ family name.

His time out in Arcadia land is detailed in “Roaring Land,” especially the chapters “Stump Farm” and “Steamboat Era.
