Front Street
Coupeville, Washington

About Us

This site is designed to provide a history of the building on Front Street, Coupeville, between Alexander Street in the West and Main Street in the East.

The site was built by the 4-HD club of the Island County 4-H. The primary students who gathered the data and rendered it into this website were:

The team was led by Robert Elphick and Paula Scharwat.

The site was built using a grant provided by the Coupeville Arts & Crafts Festival in 2013.

The site heavily used the historical research performed by Judy Lynn for her Book Images of America - COUPEVILLE as well as a series of interviews that she obtained for an oral history of Front Street, Coupeville. The oral history project interviews were made on tape between 2007 and 2013 and then transcribed to text - for more information on this project, contact the Whidbey Island Historical Society at the Coupeville Museum. Judy has also been generous with her time and expertise for this project.

The e-book Front Street, Coupeville - An Oral History by Judy Lynn contains all the interviews. I can be purchased for $9.99 at Amazon. Proceeds go to the Island County Historical Society.
