In 1906, Camano City was the hub of a growing Island community, and a school was built. Today, over a 100 years later, we offer the Schoolhouse and the adjacent Fire Hall to continue building this Island community.
We have a deep commitment to gathering the Camano Island community for educational classes and activities that highlight Camano Island’s history and provide enriching, enlightening, and empowering information regarding all aspect of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.
Our vision is to enrich the lives of Camano Island residents and visitors with the experience of “old school style” educational and cultural activities in a Washington Heritage Register one-room schoolhouse, accentuated with historic exhibits of Camano Island.

As in any structure, but especially ones of a certain age, there are many things on the list of projects to address, as the need arises and funds allow. We have accomplished so much these last few years, and most recently we completed the reinforcement of the attic.
Our focus for 2022 is for a french drain project, connecting internet to the building, and organizing and archiving photos and records....just to name a few!
