n any given day in North Kitsap, visitors and residents alike can find themselves enjoying a walk through one of the area’s numerous wilderness trails, passing by mosscovered trees and ancient old-growth stumps, strolling along pristine, sandy beaches and learning about the various cultures that make up the collective history of this special place.

North Kitsap is home to the S’Klallam and Suquamish tribes who have called this place their home since time immemorial. Scandinavian settlers also moved to the area in the late 19th century for the bounty of natural resources, good salmon fishing and the area’s resemblance to the homeland they had left behind. Modern day settlers are drawn to the area for similar reasons as their predecessors: economic opportunity, good schools, safe neighborhoods, plentiful natural space. Those who proudly call North Kitsap home have a great respect for the natural wonder of this area, many work to preserve and maintain parks, trails and other green spaces through volunteer work, environmental organizations and grants.

for their own. This is evidenced by the spirit of volunteerism fostered by groups like North Kitsap Fishline and ShareNet which work to ensure that those who are struggling can get the help they need. This magazine will introduce you to some of North Kitsap’s story and will illustrate some of the things that make this place truly unique. Inside you will find profiles for each of North Kitsap’s communities: Hansville, Eglon, Indianola, Kingston, Keyport, Little Boston, Port Gamble, Poulsbo and Suquamish. Here you will find information on arts and entertainment, events, festivals, farmers markets, government offices, museums and much more. The North Kitsap Almanac is published by the North Kitsap Herald, a part of Sound Publishing’s Kitsap News Group. Read our daily news site KitsapDailyNews.com to stay up to date on local news and upcoming events. It is with a warm, friendly welcome that we wish you a safe and enjoyable stay in North Kitsap.

he history and lives of those who have called North Kitsap home for millennia are still as closely tied to the area as ever.

Many members of the Suquamish and Port Gamble S’Klallam tribes continue to live with a direct link and reliance upon what the waters surrounding North Kitsap provide. Logging also proved to be a booming business for those who opted to strike out on their own and make a living through the hard, often dangerous work of 19th-century logging. The US Navy has had a presence in North Kitsap for more than a century, serving a vital role for the nation’s defense and the local economy by providing stable jobs to residents. A monument at Point No Point in Hansville, marks the place where US representatives and the Chemakum, S’Klallam and Skokomish peoples signed the Treaty of Point No Point on Jan. 26, 1855. The Point No Point Lighthouse is also a fixture of no small amount of historical significance. Still operational, the lighthouse serves as a navigational aid for sailors passing through Admiralty Inlet.

N o r t h

Nearby, in Little Boston the Port Gamble S’Klallam Tribe’s Point Casino offers a chance for visitors to try their luck at the many games of chance. A central feature of the casino is the courtyard which features several story poles and totem poles created by Northwest Coast Native artists. When seeking to experience the culture of North Kitsap visitors should make a point to stop by the Port Gamble S’Klallam Tribe’s House of Knowledge, which includes the tribe’s longhouse, elders center and the Little Boston Library. Along the West side of the Longhouse visitors can also find a veterans memorial. At Heronswood, a botanical garden owned by the S’Klallam Tribe, visitors can tour 15 acres of sprawling, lush, splendor, featuring plants 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 founders’ — William Talbot and Andrew Pope — hometown of East Machias, Maine. A mill operated here from 1853 until 1995. Today, Port Gamble is a National Historic Landmark District and a also features a popular events venue. Restored mid-1800s buildings

house a variety of stores and shops. The Port Gamble Historical Museum is located on the lower floor of the general store. Suquamish is home to a number of culturally significant sites within walking distance including the Suquamish Museum and Chief 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, and the House of Awakened Culture overlooking Port Madison are also must-see stops in the area. Downtown Poulsbo’s shopfronts and street names reflect the heritage of the Norwegians who settled on the banks of Liberty Bay starting in the 1880s. Downtown Poulsbo is a cultural district of sorts, with art galleries, bookstores, live theater, a marine science center, a historical museum, a maritime museum, and restaurants that reflect the diverse tastes of the unique city. At the U.S. Naval Undersea Museum in Keyport, visitors can study sea life, take a peek into a torpedo tube, and even operate a control panel in a recreated submarine control room. Admission is free.

Poulsbo’s Scandinavian heritage is reflected in the aesthetic of local shopfronts.


File photo

aving officially assumed the moniker of the “Viking City,” it’s no wonder that Poulsbo’s history is largely influenced by the Scandinavian settlers who moved to the area around the 1880’s. Before settlers moved to the shores of what is now known as Liberty Bay, a community of the Suquamish People lived at the head of the bay for thousands of years. In 1855 the Suquamish signed the treaty of Point Elliott, which made the land available to newcomers. The Suquamish reserved land for themselves and their descendants on what is now the Port Madison Indian Reservation. The Suquamish Tribe also maintained their right to hunt, fish and harvest shellfish on their usual and accustomed grounds. In September 1883, Jorgen Eliason (18471937) rowed his boat into Liberty Bay and became Poulsbo’s first, permanent, non-native resident. Waves of Norwegian settlers soon followed Eliason from Norway and the Midwest, all searching for opportunity and a landscape that reminded them of the homeland they left behind.

Carts are available for use at the Liberrty Bay Marina. When Poulsbo was incorporated in 1907, the population of the small town was around 300 people and Norwegian was still spoken by many of the residents (this would remain the case until the 1940’s when World War II brought more jobs and new residents to the area).

Today Poulsbo remains a lively hub for visitors and residents to enjoy the numerous galleries, restaurants and cultural festivals throughout the year. Muriel Iverson Williams Waterfront Park is a prominent feature of the town, with many visitors opting to cruise in to the Port of Poulsbo Marina aboard their personal vessels.

Kingston The Kingston ferry terminal provides a crucial link to Edmonds and Seattle.


he recent addition of Kitsap Transit’s passenger-only ferry service to Seattle from Kingston has cemented the small, waterfront town’s status as a gateway to the Olympic Peninsula for westbound visitors. The connection also serves as a key connection for North Kitsap residents, who previously had to commute to either Bainbridge Island or Bremerton to catch a ferry to Seattle. Kingston features a lively downtown area, a thriving marina, quiet beaches, seaview parks and natural places well worth exploring. Kingston is also home to numerous oversized Adirondack chairs, upon which visitors are welcome to sit for a photo — in fact, the chairs have enough room for a whole family to crowd

in for a group snapshot.

contribute to Kingston’s unique charm.

There’s something special about Kingston that beckons visitors to consider making the Little City by the Sea their home. Appletree Cove is a popular destination for boaters, fishers, kayakers and paddle boarders. The views of the Puget Sound are unrivaled, and visitors and residents alike can appreciate the restorative nature of taking in the beauty of the peninsula while on a local hike. Nearby is the award-winning White Horse Golf Club, owned and operated by Port Madison Enterprises, the economic development arm of the Suquamish Tribe. A farmers market and live music at Mike Wallace Park, the community’s Fourth of July celebration, and frequent waterfront events throughout the year all

While Kingston is an unincorporated town in Kitsap County, the community largely governs itself through a variety of public and non-profit agencies. The Port of Kingston owns Port of Kingston Marina, which offers 262 slips, a fuel dock, and a kayak and small-boat facility. The port district also owns the ferry landing, which it leases to Washington State Ferries; the much larger of the two ferry services in town.

he most prominent feature of Indianola also happens to be what was once the town’s only link to the outside world. The Indianola dock is a sprawling, 900-foot long wooden testament to the small community’s origins as a vacation retreat. In 1916 the dock was constructed and the Indianola Beach Land Company formed and established Indianola as a summer community. Once built, the dock was the only means for people to get in (and out) of Indianola by boat. Passenger boats shuffled in and out on a daily basis by 1929 and in 1933 voters created the Port of Indianola for

Port Gamble S’Klallam Tribe

The Port Gamble S’Klallam canoe family departs Point Julia for Port Gamble.


eekalet, which later became known as Port Gamble, is where S’Klallam ancestors lived until they were driven away with the arrival of the Pope and Talbot mill and the surrounding town. The U.S. government destroyed a S’Klallam village at Point Julia in 1939 and as a result, the tribe moved upland to Little Boston and

Coontown — named because of the large raccoon population there. Point Julia, however, still remains a large part of S’Klallam culture. The point serves as a holder of memories, a center of community and family life, a connection to the bay where the S’Klallam people have fished and clammed for millennia.

tory to the Treaty of Point No Point in 1855. In the treaty, the United States obtained land 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. The Port Gamble S’Klallam Tribe is governed by an elected council. The Tribal Council exercises full governmental authority over the Tribe’s land and resources. As a member of the Point No Point Treaty Council and the Northwest Indian Fisheries Commission, the Port Gamble S’Klallam Tribe works to protect the environment that has sustained its people for millennia and protect rights contained in the treaty, including the right to fish, hunt and gather in traditional areas. Today, the tribe owns The Point Hotel & Casino, which has four restaurants, a nightclub, an RV park and an events center; Heronswood Garden; Gliding Eagle Market; High Point Cannabis; and Kountry Korner gas station and store.

Port Gamble

Port Gamble’s Walker-Ames house has been called “washington’s most haunted house.”


ollowing the completion of an extensive cleanup of the former mill site nearshore, which saw the removal of thousands of creosote pilings and 150 years of wood waste from the bay, Port Gamble’s waterfront is now a much cleaner, healthier environment.

Today, visitors enjoy many of the amenities that the early mill-town families enjoyed: a New England-style town with tree-lined streets, a community theater, a general store, a variety of shops and stores, and scenery ideal for a wedding or an evening out. 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 a Haida raiding party. Englebrecht was the first U.S. Navy sailor to die in action in the Pacific. Ghost tours are offered regularly, which take visitors through locations around town that have been associated with reported paranormal activity. Visitors can even visit the infamous WalkerAmes house, called by some “the most haunted house in Washington.”

The Suquamish Tribe is a sovereign, indigenous nation and a signatory to the Treaty of Point Elliott of 1855. 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. The Tribe’s economic success since the 1990s has enabled it to reacquire land lost during the allotment era.

The Suquamish Clearwater Casino Resort is a sprawling testament to the tribe’s development in the area. In 2018, the Suquamish tribe reacquired 36-acres of land, leased since 1968 to nonNative residents. Something that the tribe’s chairman Leonard Forsman regarded as bad deal. The reacquisition of the land, Forsman said, was “an opportunity that the tribe has been waiting for for 50 years. We’ve endured, both politically and culturally and are in a place now that our ancestors who entered into that agreement, were hoping we’d be in when they did it.” The land, known as Suquamish Shores is expected to be developed extensively to include community spaces, a waterfront park, walking trails and a culturally-themed playground connecting the Suquamish Museum to the Veteran’s Monument near the House of Awakened Culture.

Keyport Keyport is home to a 19-slip marina.


File photo

eyport was established in 1896, and the Pacific Coast Torpedo Station followed just 18 years later, thus cementing Keyport’s role as a community with a direct link to the defense of the nation.

Where Children in Grades K—8th Find Joy in Learning!

Keyport is proud of its role, but it’s as much a community as it is Torpedo Town USA. Residents can set their clocks by the National Anthem, played over Naval Base Kitsap Keyport’s base loudspeakers every morning at 8. Keyport serves as one of the Navy’s two undersea warfare engineering stations. The Naval Undersea Museum in Keyport is one of 14 official U.S. Navy museums and is open to the public.




Voters created the Port of Keyport in 1923, and the first order of business was constructing a public dock. Today, the Port of Keyport (www. portofkeyport.com) manages a marina with 14 private slips, 250 feet of guest moorage in five 50-foot slips, and a boat launch ramp. There is water and power at all slips.

hings tend to move just a little bit slower in Hansville and that’s a good thing. The unique waterfront majesty of this small community, located at the northern tip of the Kitsap Peninsula, has no rival. Standing on the banks of the shore, visitors will be treated to uninterrupted views of Whidbey Island, Admiralty Inlet and the tunes of a wide variety of birds that call the area home. While Hansville, may not be incorporated, there exists a strong sense of community, much of what you will find in this small community — a well-kept Norwegian Point Park, clean beaches and the trails that wind from Puget Sound to Hood Canal — are due to volunteer efforts.

Hansville & Eglon

Hansville is a place for folks looking to get out and experience a bit of nature. With hundreds of acres of greenways and open spaces for biking, walking, fishing, kayaking, birdwatching and much more, Hansville is a veritable playground for anyone with an appreciation of the outdoors. The Hansville Grocery and Hansgrill are a favorite gathering place for locals and visitors to the area. The proximity to the nearby web of walking trails makes the Hansgrill a prime lunch spot for hikers looking to fill up before heading back out. Ken Haywood is renowned among the regular patrons of the grill for cooking up his rotating weekly dinner specials, served only Thursday through Saturday. Heywood’s ribs are a local favorite and word travels quickly when it get out that he’s cooking up a batch. And don’t forget! Eglon is not Hansville “We don’t want to be Hansville; we’re Eglon,” Jacque Thornton once said in response to a county plan that lumped Eglon in with neighboring Hansville for the purposes of community planning. Indeed, Eglon is an independent community with its own rich history. A dock was built there

in 1912, when the Mosquito Fleet, trails and wagon roads were the only means in and out of the community. The dock is gone, but the Eglon Port District 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.” Eglon voters elect port district commissioners to six-year terms.

A minimum balance of $20,000.00 in funds not previously held on deposit at First Federal is required to open this account.
