Friday Harbor in Song: 'Haro Strait'
January 20, 2009 · Updated 11:07 AM
The Town of Friday Harbor celebrates its centennial Feb. 9. On Feb. 2, 1909, residents voted 70-55 to incorporate Friday Harbor as a fourth-class town. On Feb. 8, the San Juan County Commission counted the ballots in a public session, then signed the incorporation document. The county auditor transmitted the document to the Secretary of State's office and incorporation took effect the following day.
In the last 100 years, our seaside village has inspired artists, authors, journalists, musicians and poets.
