Island County – now the state’s second smallest in area – once encompassed Snohomish, Skagit, Whatcom, and San Juan counties. The Oregon Territorial Legislature created Island County on January 6, 1853. It was created from Thurston County. Amendments were introduced to change the name to Atchinson, Calhoun, or Webster, but the amendments were defeated. The county is located in the east central portion of Puget Sound and consists of primarily of Whidbey and Camano Islands.
