Quincy is located near the center of Washington State just 10 miles North of I-90. Quincy is the gateway to the Wenatchee Valley, Leavenworth and the Okanogan Valley if you are traveling from the South or East. Tourism is a major part of our economy. The Gorge Amphitheater, which draws an estimated 3,000 to 20,000 people per concert, is located 10 miles southwest of Quincy. Sunland Estates summer homes and the Crescent Bar Recreation area all add to our tourism along with the already available hunting, fishing, and boating. We can call Quincy a tourist and recreational paradise.
The City of Quincy has a population of 7,345 and is located in a rural community with a total population of approximately 13,000.
Quincy and the surrounding area is a vast area of opportunities as noted on the sign as you enter Quincy, “Opportunities Unlimited.”
Today, Quincy is a highly productive agricultural area with 200,000 irrigable acres under production. The fertile soil and ideal climate conditions make it possible to grow a variety of crops such as:
Vegetable crops for food and seed are a few of the major crops grown in the Valley. The economy of the Quincy Valley is based largely on agriculture, with several processing plants, packing houses and light industry in the area. Quincy is a relatively new community with the advent of irrigation and a sense of friendliness, progressiveness and community spirit abound.
The clock and fountain downtown on Central Avenue was donated by the Quincy Rotary Club. The fountain is the creation of Scott Lybbert, a local resident who is also the creator of the Grant County Christmas Light displays that can be seen from I-90 and other county roads during the Christmas Season. Central Avenue is the main street in the Downtown Business District. The bump-outs not only provide a place for beautiful flowers but also a safe area for shoppers and pedestrians. Central Avenue is also one of the designated Truck Routes.
