Welcome to Quincy Valley

Back to all Communities
The city of Quincy provides a beautiful rugged landscape for those that live here and want to visit. The scenery has a consistent beauty and always keeps the eyes searching for more to see. If you haven't seen a sunset from Quincy, Washington, then you might be missing out on the most memorable sunsets you will ever experience. The mood of the sky offers a rainbow of colors and provides a unique vast canvas at the end of each day. The vibrant colors are enough to make a driver pull over, stop everything, and take in the moment before it disappears into the night. Quincy, Washington experienced a large growth in the 1950's. The population leaped quickly, and the town continued to grow from there. Agriculture has a much to do with their success, as this community is the place you will find farmland for days, and dairies that provide milk to the stores that you frequent. Quincy has also seen a growth in their community due to the gift of technology. Microsoft has brought a lot of new employment to the area with bringing in many jobs from Dell, Intuit, Yahoo, and other internet companies. The city of Quincy is more than just agriculture, businesses, and technology. It is the people that live here. This tight-knit community is close. They know their neighbor. They know the local business owners by name and support and lift each other up daily. They hold activities and events that are family-friendly, and they have pride in their local school sports, and support them through thick and thin. This isn't just a place to go, it's a place to live. It's a place you won't forget. Quincy, Washington continues to keep going places, and we can't wait to help you keep up. We want to be the vehicle that takes you on the journey to get to know their community and their people better.
