The Washington Territorial Legislature created Kitsap County on January 16, 1857. It was originally named Slaughter County in honor of Lt. William Slaughter who died in 1855 during the Indian Wars. However, a few weeks later the county name changed to Kitsap in honor of a local Native American chief whose name means “brave chief.” It was once part of King and Jefferson counties. The county is a peninsula located on the west side of Puget Sound.
