Head, Heart, Hands and Health

logoToday a NEW Coupeville Historic Waterfront website is born, thanks to the 4-HD Club of Island County 4-H. We may be old – but we’re hip!

Intended to educate and inspire, the new CHWA Historic Coupeville site was painstakingly researched, compiled, digitally mastered, and built by the 4-HD club of Island County 4-H.

The website brings Coupeville’s past into the present, and (soon) there will be smart phone access to each building’s page through QR codes that will be mounted in the windows of our most historic buildings.

Interactive - Click a building - read it's history

On the map page of the chwahistoriccoupeville site you’ll see this interactive map image – Click a building – and you’re automatically directed to that building’s history page. It’s that easy!
