During the month of May, the Town of Friday Harbor, in partnership with the Lopez, Orcas and San Juan Island Historical Museums and the San Juan Island National Historical Park and other community organizations, will tell the stories of the people and places of the San Juans by celebrating National Historic Preservation Month as "History Lives Here." Guided walking tours, local history talks and other special events will attract visitors and residents alike, and portray the past as long-time islanders lived and remember it.

You can also experience San Juan Islands history with our self-guided Historic Friday Harbor Walking Tour, and watch for new events and specials here.
