Stanwood Camano Historic Sites Tour

September 20 - September 21

When settlers first came here and travel was either on boat or on foot, the islands of Puget Sound were among the first places settled. Many of the remnants of those early years live on and, courtesy of the Camano Island Historic Sites Group, Camano Island is showing them off!
