Site build and maintained Island County 4-H 4-HD Project

The Coupeville Historic Waterfront Association board and members would like to thank the 4-HD club of the Island County 4-H for building the site! We LOVE IT!

Primary students who gathered the data and rendered it into this website were:

  • Grace Cash
  • Isaac Cash
  • Arthur Keast
  • Avrey Scharwat
  • Dustin Scharwat

The team was led by Robert Elphick and Paula Scharwat.


The site was built using a grant provided by the Coupeville Arts & Crafts Festival in 2013.

The site heavily used the historical research performed by Judy Lynn for her Book Images of America – COUPEVILLE as well as a series of interviews that she obtained for an oral history of Front Street, Coupeville. The oral history project interviews were made on tape between 2007 and 2013 and then transcribed to text – for more information on this project, contact the Whidbey Island Historical Society at the Coupeville Museum. Judy has also been generous with her time and expertise for this project.
