WELCOME tained them. Europeans and Americans came here beginning in the mid-1800s, and the lifeways of these newcomers evolved as they became accustomed to life in a new place. But indigenous and newer cultures had something important in common: They lived well because of the area’s beauty and bountiful natural resources. Respect for this place we share — and caring for those we share it with — is evident today. It’s evident in the efforts to balance development with the needs of our environment. It’s evident in workplace innovations that are generating new products and creating new jobs. It’s evident in the fundraising and volunteerism that ensures neighbors can meet their basic needs when faced with financial crisis. No matter where we are from, once we move here we become a part of that culture. North Kitsap is an exciting, thriving place where diversity reigns: Beaches,

“North Kitsap is an exciting, thriving place where diversity reigns.” farmland, forests, seaside towns, wildlife. Entertainment, recreation, retail, services, tourism. No wonder North Kitsap is home to more than 20 of the county’s largest private-sector employers, and eight of the largest public-sector employers. The magazine you are holding tells North Kitsap’s story. Within these pages, you’ll find profiles of our communities: Hansville/Eglon, Indianola, Keyport, Kingston, Little Boston, Port Gamble, Poulsbo, Suquamish. You’ll find information you need to know: arts and entertainment venues, civic organizations, events and festivals, farmers markets, government offices, museums and heritage sites, parks and

recreation, schools, and a handy keepsake map. You’ll also find charts and graphics that tell you a little bit about who we are: Demographics and population, cost of homes, economic data, employment data, and weather. The Almanac is published by the North Kitsap Herald, which has been the Voice of North Kitsap since 1901. Call 360-779-4464 or email cdano@northkitsapherald.com for convenient home delivery.

f you are a new resident of North Kitsap, or are considering moving here, you can learn about the diversity of this place in a daytrip. The diversity of this place — indigenous cultures, 19th century industry, a Scandinavian-themed downtown, and the U.S. Navy — is packed within a 20-mile by 10-mile area reachable by ferries from downtown Seattle and Edmonds. At Point No Point, a monument marks the place where representatives of the United States and the Chemakum, S’Klallam and Skokomish nations signed the Treaty of Point No Point on Jan. 26, 1855, opening the region to non-Native settlement. The lighthouse dates to 1879 and is open for tours. The U.S. Lighthouse Society is headquartered in the lighthouse keeper’s duplex, one side of which it rents out as a vacation rental. Next to the light station is a salt marsh that attracts one of the largest bird lists in Washington state. The forested trails of Hansville Greenway and Wildlife Preserve provide a fairly level hike from Puget Sound to Hood Canal. In Little Boston, the Port Gamble S’Klallam Tribe’s Point Casino and Event Center is a showcase of S’Klallam art; at the entrance, you will be greeted by two large welcome figures carved by S’Klallam artist Jimmy Price. A visit to the Port Gamble S’Klallam Tribe’s House of Knowledge, next to the government center, is a must. The longhouse, veterans memorial, welcome poles and an honor pole help tell the story of the S’Klallam people’s culture of welcoming, teaching and serving. Nearby is Heronswood Gardens, founded by noted horticulturalist Dan Hinkley and now owned by the Port Gamble S’Klallam Tribe (Hinkley is now on staff and frequently gives presentations). Tour 15 acres of botanical gardens featuring plants Hinkley collected from all over the world, as well as plants native to the region. Across Port Gamble Bay, the town of Port Gamble resembles the found-

A mill operated here from 1853 until 1995. Today, the community is a National Historic Landmark District and a popular events venue. Restored mid-1800s buildings now house a variety of stores and shops. The Port Gamble Historical Museum is located on the first floor of the general store. The center of Suquamish Village is a cultural district, with sites within walking distance. Visit the Suquamish Museum and view the exhibit, “Ancient Shores — Changing Tides,” presenting Suquamish history from time immemorial to present day. Nearby are Chief’s Seattle’s gravesite at the Suquamish Cemetery; Old Man House Park, once the site of the largest winter longhouse in the Salish Sea; the Suquamish Veterans Memorial, with two house posts depicting 19th century leaders Kitsap and Seattle; and the stunning House of Awakened Culture overlooking Port Madison. The Suquamish Clearwater Casino Hotel Resort overlooking Agate Pass is also appointed with Coast Salish art. Downtown Poulsbo’s building fronts and street names reflect the heritage of the Norwegians that settled here beginning in the 1880s. Downtown is an unofficial arts district. Visit Bluewater Artworks Gallery, Boatworks Gallery, Carrie Goller Gallery, Front Street Gallery, Liberty Bay Gallery, Magal & Louis Gallery, Verksted Gallery, Wide Mouth Frog Studio; create at The Dancing Brush, Kitsap Mosaic, Wide Mouth Frog and the Bead Store; listen to poetry (or read your own) at Poulsbohemian Coffeehouse; meet an author at Liberty Bay Books; see a live performance at Jewel Box Theatre. Don’t miss the Poulsbo Aquarium next to Poulsbo Marina, or the Poulsbo Historical Museum in City Hall. Downtown restaurants reflect the changing diversity of the city — Spanish, Italian, English, American, and Mexican. In Keyport, the Naval Undersea

Poulsbo: A slice of Norway on Liberty Bay

Early settlers from Scandinavia brought a lot of the old country with them when they founded Poulsbo. The town retains, and boasts, its Norwegian charm to this day. Jeff Liska

W

ith salmon-bearing streams, easy access to open water, and more, the area known today as Poulsbo has always been prized for its resources. The Suquamish Tribe was present along the shores of Liberty Bay for thousands of years before lumber and fishing companies began using the area as safe harbor for their operations. Land became available for settlement after the signing of the Treaty of Point Elliott in 1855. Jorgen Eliason (1847-1937) rowed into Dog Fish Bay — now Liberty Bay — in September 1883, and became Poulsbo’s first permanent non-Native settler. He settled here after visiting Ole Stubb (1821-1916), who was from his hometown of Nautsdal, Norway, and had settled on the other side of the bay at what is now Keyport in 1876. Waves of Scandinavian settlers followed, drawn here by similarities to their

N o r t h

home countries. They farmed, logged and fished. The defense industry created new jobs and new diversity during the Great War and World War II. When it was founded, Poulsbo’s official language was Norwegian; in fact, many early town records are written in Norwegian. The language was widely spoken in the area until waves of new residents came to town, especially during World War II. In 1886, I.B. Moe spearheaded an effort to establish a post office. He named the town “Paulsbo,” after a village in Norway. Paulsbo roughly translates to “Paul’s place.” But when postal officials in Washington, D.C. formalized the town’s post office, it exchanged the “a” for an “o,” resulting in “Poulsbo.” Poor handwriting is suspected to be the cause of the change. The spelling stuck. Poulsbo former industries have given way to new economic diversity, with

K i t s a p

A l m a n ac

five retail zones — Historic Downtown Poulsbo, the Viking Avenue Corridor, Highway 305 Corridor, the Downtown Area (outside of historic downtown), and College Marketplace, the home of “big box” retailers. Store fronts and street names in Historic Downtown Poulsbo reflect the Scandivanian heritage of the city. The Poulsbo First Lutheran Church, established more than 100 years ago, sits on a hill overlooking the city, and its bells are audible throughout downtown and the waterfront. Downtown Poulsbo offers a range of restaurants — many boasting European menus — as well as antique shops, art galleries, book stores and coffee shops. The Port of Poulsbo, a separate entity from the City of Poulsbo, operates a large marina on the waterfront, making the town an easy destination for boaters.

Hansville: Community’s life is as vibrant as its personality

T

here are two stories about how Hansville got its name. One or both may be apocryphal. But they reflect the personality of this seaside town: Never dull. Story No. 1: The earliest non-Native settlers were Anton Husby, a teetotaller, and Hans Zachariasen, who reportedly enjoyed a snort now and then. When local Scandinavian loggers wanted to unwind, they were told, “Husby von’t drink with you, but Hans vill.” Story No. 2: Local columnist Donna Lee Anderson wrote, “The story goes that because ships couldn’t get in close to shore at Point No Point, every day someone from this community had to row out

N o r t h

to the ship that carried mail, gather the communications and bring them back to the post office. “One day, the seas were particularly rough and they were looking for someone to do this rowing-out deed. They chatted about it for a while then someone said in their best Scandinavian accent, ‘Don’t worry, Hans vill do it.’ And sure enough he did, and was very reliable thereafter. And so the town was named Hansville in appreciation for his services.” The Treaty of Point No Point was signed here in 1855. Construction began on the lighthouse in 1879. A road was established from Point No Point to Port Gamble to provide access to trade and

COMMUNITIES other services. In the 1930s, four fishing resorts were developed in Hansville, prompted in part by an 1925 article by Frank L. Crosby Jr., who wrote in “Taft’s Sportsman’s Guide” urging sports fishermen to go to Hansville for some “sure-thing fishing” of the “go-out-and-get’em variety.” Three cabins at Norwegian Point Park, a three-acre county park, are from that era and are under the care of Friends of Norwegian Point Park. Volunteers hope one cabin can be restored and used as a museum. The state Department of Fish and Wildlife bought the old Point No Point fishing resort nearby, cleared the site, and developed a park and boat launch there. When completed, the boat launch will be one of six public boat launches in North Kitsap — the others are at Salsbury Point County Park and the ports of Eglon, Kingston, Keyport, and Poulsbo. The boat launch is expected to bring more visitors to the north end. The number of recreational amenities in Hansville is belied by the quiet and scenic beauty of this place, which overlooks Admiralty Inlet with views of Whidbey Island and Puget Sound. The Greater Hansville area is defined as the very northern tip of Kitsap County south to Little Boston Road and east to Eglon. Neighborhoods include Cliffside, Driftwood Key, Point No Point, Shore Woods, and Sterling Highlands. The Greater Hansville Community Center (www.hansville.org) is a center of community life. Located at Buck Lake Park, the center hosts regular events, including bingo nights, holiday gather-

“Residents still gather for bonfires and summer picnics just as they have for the last century.” ings, an annual rummage sale, and socials. The Hansville Grocery is a gathering place too; you’ll have to drive 7.5 miles to get to the nearest store. The Hansville Grocery is a general store, where you can get groceries, goodies, fishing gear and souvenirs. The store’s HansGrill restaurant features the Hansvillian — a 3-pound burger challenge. If you finish it within 12 minutes, it’s free. Other local organizations (take a deep breath): Boot Scootin’ Grannies, Eglon Improvement Club, Flotsam and Jetsam Garden Club, Friends of Point No Point Lighthouse, Hansville Art Guild, Hansville Greenway, Hansville Historical Society, Hansville Ladies Aid, Men’s Koffee Klatch, and North Kitsap Puget Sound Anglers. Nature Conservancy volunteers help care for Foulweather Bluff Preserve. Hansville has hundreds of acres of greenways and open space for biking, hiking, and wildlife watching. Hansville Greenway Wildlife Corridor and Community Trails wind from Norwegian Point Park to Hood Canal in the west and Point No Point Park in the east.

Eglon’s independence In 1990, the Eglon Improvement Club sent a letter to the county Board of Commissioners in response to a county plan that lumped Eglon in with Hansville for the purposes of community planning. The club’s message, summed up later by resident Jacque Thornton, was succinct: “We don’t want to be Hansville; we’re Eglon.” Indeed, Eglon has its own history. A dock was built here in 1912, when the Mosquito Fleet, trails and wagon roads were the only means in and out of the community. Today, the dock is gone, but the Port of Eglon owns a boat launch, parking lot, picnic area, and beach. Wendy Tweten wrote in the Kingston Community News in 2008: “It remains a small town with roots that go back more than 100 years. Community amenities include a church, meeting hall, cemetery, a fire truck (kept in one family’s garage), and the beach, where residents of Eglon still gather for bonfires and summer picnics just as they have for the last century.”

The Indianola dock was built in 1916 to accommodate the Mosquito Fleet. The dock was the only entrance to Indianola until 1935 when a road was constructed to connect it to neighboring North Kitsap communities. Today, it is used by swimmers and those seeking a scenic view of Puget Sound. File photo

Indianola: A dock, beach and lots of memories

I

ndianola is located on the north shore of Port Madison, on the Port Madison Indian Reservation. The Indianola shore faces Port Madison Bay and Miller Bay. Prior to the arrival of settlers, the water was — and still is — used by the Suquamish Tribe for fishing and harvesting shellfish. The bounties included salmon, clams and other shellfish relied on by the Tribe. The 1855 Treaty of Point Elliott created the Port Madison Reservation, but other policies and events led to much of the land that became Indianola to be placed under non-Indian ownership. Development in Indianola began in 1916 with the formation of the Indianola Beach Land Company. Indianola was established as a summer community. The town’s now-iconic dock was built in 1916, and passenger boats transported people to and from Seattle every day by 1929. Voters created the

N o r t h

Port of Indianola in 1933 to maintain the dock, and Mosquito Fleet ferries visited here until 1951, when the Agate Pass bridge was completed and Washington State Ferries took over ferry service on Puget Sound. Today, the dock is used for recreational purposes — fishing, swimming, and enjoying the sea view. Although technically a pier, the dock has a float where small boats can tie up temporarily. The Indianola Clubhouse, built in 1930, is a venue for local events. Indianola’s forests and beaches still draw visitors. Each summer, the community celebrates Indianola Days. There is no set date; it’s held on whichever weekend coincides with the lowest minus tide. Indianola Days features a car show, dance, pet parade, salmon bake, tennis tournament, and talent night. Beach activities include a sand castle contest, kids’ dash and tug-of-war competition. Discover more about Indianola’s

Port of Indianola The Port of Indianola (www.portofindianola.com) owns the property and tidelands 50 feet to the left and right of the dock. Port assets include the dock, the mooring float and the access stairs to the beach. The beach is open only to members of the Indianola Beach Improvement Club. The port boundary is a grid that stretches about two miles east to west. The west boundary is a line stretching north to south, from Sunridge Way NE in Miller Bay to Gerald Cliff Drive. In 2014, the port’s property tax rate was 15.4 cents per $1,000 of assessed property value, or $30.80 annually on a house

assessed at $200,000. In 2014, the port dipped into its reserves to cover the costs of dock improvements — it expected to receive $57,500 in property tax revenue but have $112,515 in expenses. Port commissioners are unpaid. They are Jeff Henderson, Eric Cookson, and John Lane.

Indianola Beach Improvement Club The Indianola Beach Improvement Club was incorporated in 1928 to raise money for local capital projects. The club led the development of the Indianola Clubhouse.

Keyport: Small town contributes in a big way

T

he unincorporated town of Keyport was a community by 1896, although its first nonNative settler, Norwegian-born Ole Stubb (1821-1916), had settled here in 1875 after sojourns in Stony Lake, Michigan; Union County, South Dakota; and Camano Island. A wharf was built for the Mosquito Fleet in the mid-1890s. Keyport Bible Church was established in the early 1900s.

Then, the quiet little town on Liberty Bay began to change in a profound — and nationally important — way. Keyport caught the attention of the United States Navy in 1910. The Navy had been searching for a site to build a Pacific Coast torpedo station. It had the advantage of being close to Puget Sound Navy Yard in Bremerton, and the Pacific Coast Torpedo Station was established in 1914. Navy divers trained here as well.

Kitsap. Port Gamble was, and still is, a company town. The area was called Teekalet before settlers came to the region, but today it bears the name of a naval officer, given when the Wilkes Expedition mapped the region in 1841. The company town was founded on a sand spit at the mouth of a bay when William Talbot and Andrew Pope established a sawmill there in 1853, two years before the Point No Point Treaty was signed, making land here available for non-Native settlement. The bay was seen as a safe harbor for

N O R T H

K I T S A P

a sawmill operation and its ships. Talbot’s business partner, Josiah Keller, struck a deal with the local S’Klallam people — they moved to the other side of the bay, to Point Julia, to allow for the sawmill operation in exchange for jobs, lumber for homes, and firewood. Those families lived at Point Julia until the 1930s, when the U.S. government destroyed the village and moved in inhabitants further inland and established the Port Gamble S’Klallam Reservation. The Puget Mill Company’s workforce included S’Klallam people and transplants from East Machias, Maine, Pope and Talbot’s home town. The town of Port Gamble grew around the sawmill to house its workers, and the homes and other buildings have architectural features similar to those in Maine.

File photo Buried at Port Gamble’s cemetery is Gustave Englebrecht, a Navy sailor killed in 1856 in a battle between crewmembers of the USS Massachusetts and indigenous raiding parties from British and Russian territories. Englebrecht is the first U.S. Navy sailor to die in action in the Pacific. The first school in the county was built in Port Gamble in 1859. The first Masonic Lodge in the state was established in Port Gamble the same year. When the mill closed in 1995, it was the oldest continuously operating sawmill in the United States. But the company town dynamic is partially still in place. Port Gamble is owned by Pope Resources, a corporate descendent of Pope & Talbot’s Puget Mill Company. Pope Resources has restored many of the original buildings and homes and has filed a plan with Kitsap County to build more homes, commercial buildings, a hotel and a dock, to transform the tourism-oriented town into a year-round community. Pope is also engaged in cleaning up and restoring the shoreline from impacts from a century-and-a-half of mill-

Today, visitors enjoy many of the amenities that the town’s mill families enjoyed: A New England-style town with shops, a community theater, scenic views and a setting ideal for a wedding party or an evening dinner. Port Gamble has its own zip code and a total of 45 residents, to round out its small-town ambiance. Despite the small population, Port Gamble garners plenty of foot traffic from tourists walking the more than 100-year-old neighborhood lined with stores. Shops range from a rare book store, a tea room, a quilt shop, an outdoor recreation store, a general store, and a dining establishment with a bar. Port Gamble is a popular venue for weddings. It’s paranormal side also attracts visitors. Ghost tours are frequently offered, which take an evening jaunt through the old homes and spooky historic tales. (Port Gamble was the setting of and filming location for the 2010 film “ZMD: Zombies of Mass Destruction.” It’s also the setting for author Gregg Olsen’s “Empty Coffin” series of novels.)

The treaty was signed by representatives of the United States and of the S’Klallam, Chimakum and Skokomish peoples. In the treaty, the United States obtained land for non-Native settlement, in exchange for certain payments and obligations. The indigenous signatories reserved land over which they have jurisdiction, and retained certain cultural and natural resource rights within their historical territories. As an indigenous nation and a treaty signatory, the Port Gamble S’Klallam Tribe has a government-to-government relationship with the United States. The Port Gamble S’Klallam Tribe is governed by an elected six-member council. The chairman is Jeromy Sullivan. Vice-chairman is Chris Tom.

Council members are Dawn Purser, Kyle Carpenter, Jamie Aikman, and Eugene Purser. The Port Gamble S’Klallam Tribe’s council exercises full governmental authority over the Tribe’s land and resources. Governmental departments and entities include administration, child and family services, courts, cultural resources, economic development, education, health services, housing, natural resources, public safety, and utilities and public works. As a member of the Point No Point Treaty Council and the Northwest Indian Fisheries Commission, Port Gamble S’Klallam works to protect the environment that has sustained its people for millennia and protect rights contained in the treaty, among them the right to fish, hunt and gather in traditional areas. Little Boston is a center of Port Gamble S’Klallam life. The House of Knowledge houses a career and education center,

The Journey brings hundreds of visitors to the area to celebrate the traditional form of travel on the ancestral marine highways. The canoes, many of them hand-carved and decorated, are works of art. Traditional foods, dances, songs and stories are shared. The Port Gamble S’Klallam Tribe initiated some projects in 2014 that will help tell the S’Klallam story in a striking way. The Tribe received a $10,000 grant for the creation and installation of welcome poles at Heronswood Garden and Point Julia. Both installations will be symbolic. Point Julia is the site of the Tribe’s first village after being relocated across Port Gamble Bay. The pole will bless and welcoming Native fishers and welcome visitors during the Canoe Journey and other cultural events. The pole at the entrance to Heronswood Garden will add a piece of Native culture to the garden, which was purchased by the Tribe in 2012. The garden is becoming a venue for community events throughout the year. The Tribe also opened another recre-

The Point Casino and Event Center, which opened in 2012, is a showcase of S’Klallam art. Besides the event center, there is an upscale restaurant and two other dining venues. The Point has an air circulation system that renders it virtually smoke-free. The Tribe partnered with the Kitsap Forest & Bay Coalition, which raised money to buy from Pope Resources as Jeff Etchey, Owner

private-sector employer in Kitsap County, with 752 employees, surpassed only by Harrison Medical Center. That’s according to data from the Kitsap Economic Development Alliance. The Tribe has reacquired land lost during the allotment era, and “the Tribe and Tribal members now own more than half of the land on the reservation for the first time in recent history,” Suquamish Tribe communications director April Leigh said. Recent major acquisitions include White Horse Golf Club in 2010, placed into trust in March 2014; and 200 acres known as the Place of the Bear, in the Cowling Creek watershed, in November.

Completion of the Suquamish Museum in 2012 helped solidify Suquamish Village as a walkable cultural district which includes Chief Seattle’s grave, the Old Man House site, the Suquamish Veterans Memorial, and the House of Awakened Culture. The Tribe owns and operates an accredited school for grades 6-12, Chief Kitsap Academy, which offers regular public school curriculum as well as culturally-oriented classes. According to the state Office of the Superintendent of Public Instruction, only four of 10 of North Kitsap School District schools and programs met Adequate Yearly Progress goals in reading and math proficiency in 2014 — one of those was Chief Kitsap Academy. Suquamish Seafoods is building a 16,000-square-foot seafood processing plant, eight times larger than the current plant. It will have chilled processing rooms, live-product holding areas, larger cold storage and air-blast freezers. Until now, Suquamish Seafoods has concentrated on geoduck. “With the new plant, we have the ability to deliver fresh clams, crab and salmon to our commercial customers,” Suquamish Seafoods general manager Tony Forsman said when construction began. “We also plan to develop our product lines further, making them available directly to the consumer.” The new plant is expected to be in operation in spring. Construction is expected to be completed by fall on a 34,000-square-foot fitness and youth center, on Totten Road near the Tribe’s early learning center and a sports field. The Suquamish Tribe government has a preliminary master plan for Suquamish Shores, a neighborhood of 80 lots on 36 acres, midway between the government center and the House of Awakened Culture. Leases there expire in 2018, and Chairman Leonard Forsman said the Tribe is looking at restoring the area to

N o r t h

accommodate cultural activities, recreation, and, possibly, housing for elders. Planning “is still a dynamic process,” Forsman said. The Suquamish Tribe has grown in political influence as well. Forsman, an anthropologist and archeologist who has served as the Suquamish Tribe’s chairman since 2005, is also a governor-appointed member of the state Board on Geographic Names and an Obama appointee to the U.S. Advisory Council on Historic Preservation. Rion Ramirez, general counsel for Port Madison Enterprises, is an Obama appointee to the President’s Commission on White House Fellowships. Cindy Webster-Martinson, a former Suquamish Tribal Council member, is vice president of the North Kitsap School Board and is believed to be the first Native American elected to public office in Kitsap County.

Not all about gaming When Russell Steele became CEO of Port Madison Enterprises, or PME, in 2001, PME had 274 employees and the casino was in a fabric building with about 200 slot machines and 27 table games. “I’m now sitting at 800 employees and I have 60-plus job openings now. When we get through with the expansion, we will add another 95 jobs on top of that.” Steele said he was not at liberty to disclose revenue figures. But he told this story to illustrate the annual economic growth that he said is still “phenomenal.” The present casino opened in 2003. The next year, Suquamish Tribe bought Kiana Lodge. The casino had a convention hall with a little over 7,500 square feet. PME moved the convention business to Kiana Lodge and filled the former convention hall with 400 machines. “The amount of revenue generated by food and beverage in a year was duplicated in 11 days by the 400 machines,” he said. Suquamish Clearwater Casino Resort is not just about gaming. It’s about connecting visitors to cultural, entertainment and recreational experiences, he said. Steele pointed out that in Las Vegas — the gambling capital of the United States — only 37 percent of revenue is generated from
