Anacortes History

  1. City of Anacortes Incorporation (1891)

    May 19, 2020, 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.

  2. Online Event - Birds of the Ship Harbor Interpretive Preserve

    May 19, 2020, 7:00 PM - 7:30 PM @ An online Zoom meeting - Check link below for more info.

    Join us for a virtual presentation brought to you by the Friends of Skagit Beaches! Ship Harbor Interpretive Preserve, located near the Anacortes ferry terminal, packs a surprising variety of habitats into a small package. The beach and bay attract ducks, gulls and occasional shorebirds; a transition zone of shrubs and small trees lures sparrows, finches and hummingbirds; a freshwater wetland hosts marsh wrens, Virginia rails and red-winged blackbirds; and the woods shelter numerous migrants including Swainson’s thrushes, cedar waxwings and several warbler species. Neil O’Hara has photographed more than 40 of the 139 bird species observed at SHIP and will share those images along with recordings of their songs as he explores the micro-habitats nestled in this ecological gem.
