San Juan Island National Historical Park

Size: 2,146 Acres

Overview: San Juan Island National Historical Park was once the site of an ongoing land dispute, which culminated in 1859 between Great Britain and the United States. Both countries wanted possession of the island, and nearly went to war, although it ended with a peaceful agreement. Today, the park not only commemorates this historic resolution, but is an amazing natural resource, with beautiful saltwater shores, prairies, forests, and a rich variety of wildlife, including shorebirds and orca whales. Visitors will find an abundance of recreational and historic opportunities to enjoy!
