Discover the History of Bainbridge Island

Bainbridge Island HistoryLike nearly all other small towns across America and throughout the World, Bainbridge Island has a deeply rooted and storied history that spans generations.  The tapestries woven into our small island’s history include: Native American families that used the island as their seasonal hunting and fishing grounds; the explorers who charted Puget Sound; the early families who homesteaded the island; the Croatian fisherman who settled in Eagle Harbor in the 1880s; the Port Blakely lumber mill; and perhaps the most famous bit of Bainbridge Island History, the Japanese American internment exhibit.
