As a fourth generation Islander I have always been interested in Vashon’s history and enjoyed listening to old timers tell Vashon stories.
After sharing some our respective old family photos on Facebook Jim Sherman and I set up the Old Vashon Pictures and Stories Facebook page in 2011. It has since grown to over 3,500 members and thousands of photos documents and stories from Vashon history.
With this blog I plan to post some of the research, photos and video I have been working on, along with other things Vashon that are not necessarily history related. I look forward to this format as it allows me to customize to fit my needs and keep more control of my content.
