Anacortes History

  1. Tommy Thompson trestle re-opening party (2010)

    June 17, 2020, All Day

    On this date in 2010 the community gathered to celebrate the grand-reopening of the Tommy Thompson Trail’s trestle, which had been severely damaged by an arsonist the previous October. This was the culmination of a massive effort to restore the well-loved trail: “Fix-It” buttons were worn by many, and a fundraising campaign led by Michele Pope raised more than $300,000 for repairs.

  2. First salmon canned in Anacortes (1896)

    June 24, 2020, All Day @ Rosario Straits Packing Company

    The first canneries in Anacortes – Fidalgo Island Packing Co., Anacortes Canning Co., and Rosario Straits Canning Co. – were built in 1896, but Rosario, the last to begin construction, became the first to successfully begin canning salmon on this date in 1896. A reported half a million cans had been stockpiled for the opening, enough to run the cannery at full capacity for an expected 8-10 days. In 1905 the cannery was purchased by Porter Fish Co., which also purchased the nearby Robinson Fisheries building in 1911. Fishermen’s Packing Corp. operated the plant 1938-1978, and Whitney Fidalgo operated it 1978-1985. Today Trident Seafoods Corporation operates on the site.
