Biography

Humble Beginnings in 1913+

The Port of Bremerton is the 4th oldest port in the State of Washington and the first of many in Kitsap County.

As the story has been passed down through generations, it is said that the city of Bremerton had inadvertently built portions of its wharf, an important commercial and transportation hub, over privately-owned tidelands. The property owner's threatened lawsuit prompted a signature-gathering campaign by citizens to put the formation of a port district within the city of Bremerton's boundaries on the ballot in the hopes of resolving the dispute.
