Robert Gray (1755-1860) was an American explorer who had previously been in the Navy during the Revolutionary War. Gray sailed from Boston, Massachusetts in 1787 and traveled around Sougrayth America to the northwest coast of North America and on to China where he traded furs for tea. He began his journey with Captain John Kendrick in a sister ship. Gray continued west, and returned to Boston in 1790. Gray was the first American-
born in an America ship to circumnavigate the globe. In 1791, he led another expedition to the northwest coast on a ship called “Columbia.” In 1792, Gray sighted, named and sailed up the Columbia River in Oregon, and also explored Gray’s Harbor in what is now the state of Washington. Because of Gray’s exploration, the United States now laid claim to the Oregon Territory. Gray again continued westwards and circumnavigated the glob, returning to Boston in 1793.
Robert Gray Elementary School was build in 1955. It was remodeled in 1997.
