The Washington State Committee on Geographic Names is considering a proposal to rename a 10.5-acre lake near Maggie Lake in the Tahuya area Nathaniel Sargent Lake, in honor of a Black man born into slavery who homesteaded in Seabeck. The lake is currently named Grass Lake, but until the 1990s was known as "N------ Slough."
