Welcome to the Fox Island Museum

Welcome to the Fox Island Museum







The Fox Island Historical Society held its first meeting on February 22, 1897, and has held a President's Day potluck every year since, for 117 consecutive years.

The Historical Society was reactivated in 1959 and opened the first Museum in the Nichols Community Center in 1959.

The present Museum building opened in 1980 after many years in one room of the old School Building (Nichols Community Center).

The purpose of the Museum is to display artifacts used by people here on the Island to illustrate the changes in life styles through the years. There are more than 3000 artifacts on display in Dioramas, Showcases, and free standing exhibits.

Among them is a display describing the life of former Governor Dr. Dixy Lee Ray, the largest collection of pulley blocks in the State, Indian artifacts and several antique gasoline engines in working order.

Our current main exhibit highlights the Mosquito Fleet that served Puget Sound and Fox Island. Come and see our topo relief map showing ports of call and shipwrecks.
