  • How and why did it start?
  • How many large sailing ships were built there?
  • How many sawmills were there?
  • What happened to the brothel?
  • What ties did Ansel Adams the photographer have to Seabeck?
  • Was Ah Fong’s gold fact or fiction?
  • What was the boxer Jack Dempsey doing in Camp Union?

What a lot of the local people do not realize is that some of the local history is buried right up on the hill above the quiet little community of Seabeck, a mill town in Kitsap County, a region in the Northwest of the United States. There is a little patch of tangled salah brush, blue huckleberry, saplings and a headstone here and there that is referred to as the Seabeck Cemetery. Many of the people buried there helped to build Seabeck and the surrounding communities. Those few remaining headstones are only a small portion of the nearly two hundred graves concealed there.
