Join us for a fun evening - we'll uncork a few bottles of wine and share a bite of history!
Join Council Member and Executive Director of the Kitsap History Museum for a deep dive into the 1918 Bremerton housing boom. Due to a shortage in housing for shipyard workers and other war industry workers during World War I, the United States Government embarked upon an unprecedented experiment - the planning and construction of neighborhoods and housing for American workers and their families. Within a period of two years over 83 new housing projects in 26 States were designed, planned and had commenced construction - Bremerton being one of them. Join us for some wine and snacks and find out more about this project that helped shape the development of Bremerton.
