Anacortes History

  1. City of Anacortes Incorporation (1891)

    May 19, 2021, All Day

    On this date in 1891, Anacortes officially became a city. Incorporation efforts were buoyed by a boom, which was caused by expectations that Fidalgo Island would be selected as a transcontinental railroad terminus. Although this bubble was already deflating by the time incorporation was accomplished, the non-terminus city soldiered on, building a combination City Hall, police station and fire hall, and equipping its fire department. The bust hit the new city’s revenues hard, and it took decades to pay off its initial expenditures.

  1. Humanities WA Presents: From Crime to Classroom

    May 5, 2021, 7:00 PM - 8:00 PM @ Online via Zoom

    Blending his personal story and scholarship, Amili leads a discussion on the benefits of the “prison-to-college pipeline,” where incarcerated and formerly incarcerated people can take college courses and receive a degree. Studies have shown that education is one of the best ways to reduce the chance of returning to prison, and Omari explores how we all benefit—as individuals and a society—from the new perspective, sense of direction, and confidence education provides.

    Amili is an author and community leader who has worked with South Seattle College, the ACLU of Washington, and Civil Survival.
