Bainbridge Island Review

Bainbridge Island Review

Tucked into central Puget Sound, a half-hour by ferry from downtown Seattle, Bainbridge Island has made its share of history, from 19th century shipbuilding at Port Madison, to 20th century lumber milling at Port Blakely, to the crucial role the island’s military installations served in winning the war in the Pacific during World War II. The Bainbridge Island Review has been there to cover it all, even making a little history of its own along the way as the only West Coast newspaper to defend the rights of Japanese-American citizens during the war. Today, the Review is committed to keeping 23,000 islanders – and, via the Internet, our many friends and family members abroad – up to date on the amazing little community around them. If it happens on Bainbridge Island, the Review has it covered.

I love my ‘Review.’ Our community is very important to me. Reading the Bainbridge Review provides an overview of our entire community and makes you feel part of something special; it keeps me up-to-date on all the issues that make Bainbridge Island such a special place.”
