Coupeville is the second oldest town in the majestic state of Washington.  Located at the central point of Whidbey Island, Coupeville is sits on the edge of Penn Cove (part of the Salish Sea).

Explore historic Coupeville through our bonus history site.  Click on a building and read its history. The site was built by the Whidbey Island 4-H Club AV project – we’re proud and thank them for site and the work they do updating it.  Our 4-H clubs are the best! 



Join our effort to help preserve the Coupeville wharf.  The wharf is 110 years old and one of the largest wharfs of it’s kind in Washington and the country.  Our state port budget always needs shoring up and Pennies for Preservation campaign adds a good shot in the arm for our port and wharf every year.

    Ditto on maintaining a great website! Thank you all. Here’s a copy of Letter to Whidbey Examiner: Most of our heart and soul still resides in Coupeville. . . and will forever.

    How profoundly grateful we are for the dedication of Charlotte’s Bench. Only Charlotte could anchor her family and embrace a whole town as she did.

    Thank you all for giving the embrace back.

    Sincerely (Wow! We couldn’t mean it more.),
    Maury and Julie (Christensen) Fielding
