San Juan Historical Museum, 323 Price Street

Join us for another informative evening with Gerry King, a long-time San Juan Island resident and a descendant of the early settler King Family.  

Gerry will discuss what it was like to live on the island during WWII and what measures islanders had to take to protect the island home front. Rationing, blackouts, observation posts and an army radar station were all a part of island living during that time. Attendees are invited to share their own memories and stories. An informative evening is in store as we turn back the clock to an earlier era. 

Suggested donation is $5 and museum members are admitted at no charge. Proceeds will benefit the San Juan Island Museum of History and Industry.
