Seattle Real Estate Spotlight: Bainbridge Island

Bainbridge Island is an affluent community located just west of Seattle in the Puget Sound. A 35-minute ferry ride from Seattle, Bainbridge is a popular residential community for commuters who work in Seattle. Many homes here have Puget Sound, Olympic, and Cascade views, and there is a strong sense of community centered around the city of Bainbridge (formerly known as Winslow), located on Eagle Harbor. Bainbridge Island offers the best of small-town living with natural beauty and island charm.

History

Originally inhabited by the Suquamish Tribe, the island was ceded to the U.S. government in 1855 and named for Commodore William Bainbridge. From the late 1800's through the 1920's, it served as a major milling and shipbuilding center. Fort Ward was a U.S. Navy outpost during WWII, and the island's Japanese residents were some of the first to be sent to internment camps. Car ferry service to Seattle began in 1937, and the town of Winslow incorporated in 1947.

Points of Interest

Bainbridge's main business district is located near the ferry dock at Eagle Harbor, and offers a wide variety grocery shopping, restaurants, coffee shops, and local businesses. Residents here enjoy wineries, local arts, farms, hiking, sailing and kayaking in a beautiful setting. The Bainbridge Farmer's Market is open from April through December, and the island's many parks offer countless places to spend time outdoors. The Bainbridge ferry offers some of the best views of the Seattle skyline.
