Orcas History Lives Here!

Orcas Island Historical Museums

From the Collection: Photos of Eastsound

Our 2018 featured exhibit showcased historical images from the Museum's archives.

Photos of Eastsound marks over 120 years of change in the life and spirit of Eastsound. The exhibit traces the dramatic evolution from an expanse of orchards in the 1890's to the commercial center of Orcas that it is today. Photos of Eastsound was also a chance for the Museum to survey and expand its collection of photos. By presenting our collection to the community, we identified gaps and are working build a fuller and more cohesive representation of Eastsound for all generations.
