Anderson Island Historical Society
"Preserve, Present, and Engage"
Adopted March 11, 2009. Revised 2018.
The Anderson Island Historical Society provides a view of the lifestyle of living on an island in the southern-most part of Puget Sound by preserving local culture, thereby enabling present and future generations to learn about and maintain the heritage of this unique style of living. To accomplish this mission the society will:
- Educate the public about the island’s historical significance in the south sound and advocate the preservation of the symbols that demonstrate that significance.
- Operate the historical Johnson Farm as a museum and collect, preserve, interpret and exhibit materials that exemplify the history of Anderson Island and the surrounding area according to the Collections Policy of the Society.
- Identify, restore and maintain historical structures, as well as preserve the memories of longtime residents.
- Nurture and Engage the Anderson Island Community through island events.
