The City of Port Orchard’s identity is anchored in its connections to the past. Originally a booming lumber town called Sidney, Port Orchard became Kitsap County’s first incorporated city in 1890.
One of the best ways to arrive from Seattle is by foot ferry from the Bremerton Ferry Terminal. You can also arrive by crossing the Tacoma Narrows Bridge or the Hood Canal Bridge if you are arriving from the Olympic Peninsula.
The historic foot ferry, The Carlisle II, is one of the original Mosquito Fleet boats that was the primary mode of transportation around the Puget Sound in the early 1900's.
Port Orchard has a charming downtown waterfront with antique shops, dining with local brews & bites, walking paths, a playground and community park for family friendly activities, and much more!
Built in 1908, The Sydney Museum was the first Masonic Temple building in Port Orchard. The Museum includes a general store, school, doctor's office and hardware store. The museum is open Tuesday through Saturday, 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. and Sunday 1 p.m. to 4 p.m.
