Orcas History Lives Here!

Orcas Island Historical Museums

Watch for more Museum at Home events soon! 




Please note: History at Home: Island neighbors helping neighbors in the early homesteading period took place online at 7:00 pm on June 24 as a free webinar.


Join historian and San Juan Islander Boyd Pratt for a talk on the history of island homesteaders, and the ways in which they came together to be self-sufficient, inspired by the following quote:


​"The beauty that we see in the vernacular landscape is the image of our common humanity: hard work, stubborn hope, and mutual forbearance striving to be love" (J. B. Jackson)
