Bainbridge Island, WA 98110
The Bainbridge Island Historical Museum and the award-winning exhibit “Kodomo No Tame Ni-For the Sake of the Children.” It covers a century of history of pioneering Japanese immigrants and Japanese Americans on Bainbridge Island from 1883 to 1983, highlighting their contributions to the community, businesses, and culture and sharing their experiences and perspectives during World War II.
The Society began as an informal group in the 1930s, meeting in member homes. In 1949, its members joined the newly formed Kitsap County Historical Society as the Bainbridge Island branch. Elnora Parfitt was elected president and later became Museum Director. In 1971, the Bainbridge Island School District board voted to donate the former Island Center schoolhouse to the Society for use as a museum. The schoolhouse, built in 1908, was one of the Island's last one-room schools in operation when it closed in 1923 and had been moved to the high school to be used as a band and choir room.
Located in downtown Winslow, Bainbridge Island, just a ten minute walk from the ferry.
