Synopsis: The town of Sidney was platted in 1886 by Frederick Stevens and contained a pottery works, shingle mill, and sawmill by 1889. The surrounding thick forests and lack of roads meant the area was accessible only by water. The year 1889 also saw the building of the first wharf, allowing numerous passengers and freight steamers of the Mosquito Fleet (so called because its numbers were said to resemble a swarm of mosquitoes) to stop at Sidney, thus facilitating the growth of the town. In December 1890, three months after Sidney’s incorporation, the federal government approved Sinclair Inlet as the location for a Pacific Northwest shipyard. Early major developments determined the town’s future: moving the county seat from Port Madison to Sidney, renaming the town Port Orchard, and locating the Washington State Veterans Home near Port Orchard.

About the Author: The mission of the Kitsap County Historical Society (founded in 1948) is to collect, preserve, and exhibit the diverse culture, heritage, and history of Kitsap County for the education and enjoyment of the public. The society has selected images from its archives and collected information on the town’s history from various sources, including historical society files, newspaper articles, and oral histories of early town citizens.
