Aberdeen is a city located in Grays Harbor County, Washington. As of the 2000 census, the city had a total population of 16,461. The city is made up almost entirely of a ghetto that extends into nearby Cosmopolis and Hoquiam, although there are some isolated areas of relative wealth. Aberdeen is sometimes called the "Gateway to the Olympic Peninsula" or the "Birthplace of Grunge", however locals generally term it "Hicktown, USA" or, as famous Aberdonian Kurt Cobain put it:
Aberdeen is the homeport of the tall ship Lady Washington, a reproduction of a smaller vessel used by the explorer Captain Robert Gray.
