Suquamish

Suquamish, located on the Port Madison Indian Reservation, is home of the Suquamish Tribe

One of the most influential leaders of the Northwest, Chief Seattle, lived here and he is buried at Suquamish Memorial Cemetery behind St. Peters Mission.

The name Suquamish comes from the original main village site along Agate Passage , called "d'suq'wub," which means "place of clear water."

In the 1920's much of Suquamish was a vacation get-away, with small cabins dotting the waterfront. Today many of the cabins have been renovated, or replaced with larger, more substantial homes. The community is a checker board of privately owned, and tribal trust property.

Located along Agate Passage and on Port Madison, Suquamish enjoys some of Kitsap Peninsula's most spectacular views, looking across Puget Sound at Seattle, the Cascade Mountains and Mt. Rainier.

To "see" the story of the Land In The Sky Story Pole that once stood in Suquamish, follow this link.

Visit the Grover's Creek Fish Hatchery, Suquamish Museum, Old Man House Park, or the gravesite of Chief Sealth, for whom Seattle is named.

For those wishing to test their luck, the Suquamish Clearwater Casino Resort features Vegas-style gaming, bingo, world-class entertainment, and four dining options as well as a waterfront hotel. A free shuttle runs between the Bainbridge Island and Kingston ferry docks and the resort.
