Bainbridge Island Business Directory - Bainbridge Island, Washington
In 1792, Captain George Vancouver, an English explorer for King George, anchored off the Island's south shore at today's Bean's Bight. He named the point Restoration Point in honor of the day King Charles II was restored to the English throne. The Suquamish, led by Chief Kitsap, were at their nearby summer camp. In 1855, as part of the Treaty of Point Elliott signed by Chief Sealth (Seattle), the Suquamish ceded Bainbridge Island and their other lands to the U.S. government.
In 1841, U.S. Navy Lieutenant Charles Wilkes visited the Island while surveying the Northwest. Lt. Wilkes named the Island after Commodore William Bainbridge, commander of the frigate Constitution in the War of 1812. He also named several other areas of the Island and these names are still in use today.
The Territory of Washington was created on March 2, 1853. In 1857, a new county was formed and eventually named Kitsap in honor of the chief.
With few interior roads, most early island travel was by water. Mosquito Fleet steamers carried freight and passengers between Island landings and Seattle and Kitsap destinations. Communities grew around some 30 mosquito fleet landings, and residents knew their captain's whistle signature. Car ferry service began by barge from Point White to Retail. Regular car service to Seattle began in 1923 from Port Blakely. In 1937, Seattle car ferry service moved to Eagle Harbor.
The town of Winslow incorporated in 1947, developed water and sewer utilities, and became the Island's urban center. The Agate Pass Bridge was built in 1950 and with it the Island's first state highway. The Army returned to install a Nike missile base and radar station. The Washington State Ferries took over the old shipyard and Winslow became a busy connection to the Kitsap and Olympic peninsulas.
Some Islanders felt they were paying an undue portion of the county's taxes and receiving indifferent county services. Others were concerned that major decisions affecting the Island were made with little input from Islanders. In 1969, a bid for incorporation of the area outside Winslow failed at the polls. Another effort in the early 80s did not reach the polls. But in 1988, a citizens' Home Rule organization became active, culminating in the 1990 vote to allow the City of Winslow to annex the remainder of the Island. This vote was so close that a recount was needed. In 1991, residents voted to change the city's name to Bainbridge Island.
