Originally named “Marrow-Stone Point” in 1792 by explorer George Vancouver, Marrowstone Island later gained popularity between 1920 to the 1940s for production of premium turkeys. On the north end of Marrowstone is Fort Flagler, a coastal defense fort constructed in 1898 to keep invaders from attacking Puget Sound. Now a 784-acre state park, Fort Flagler provides hiking trails, beach access, building rentals for educational groups, and fortifications to explore. The rest of the island is comprised of beautiful rural farms, an oyster farm, and vacation homes. Located a little over an hour from Seattle, the island is easy to access for a quick escape.
