Fort Ward Hall earns State of Washington’s 2020 Historic Preservation Stewardship Award

To all who helped us along the way, a heartfelt THANK YOU. It’s your award too.


PS. We’re done.

Fort Ward Bakery, July 2020

The Fort Ward Community Hall is a collaborative effort of Friends of Fort Ward, the Bainbridge Island Metro Park and Recreation District, Kitsap County (Fort Ward) Sewer District No. 7, and residents of the historic Fort Ward neighborhood on Bainbridge Island, WA.  

Together we have restored the fort’s historic bakery building for use as a community hall and neighborhood gathering place. (Not as a bakery.)

Please see our blog posts at right for the story of our project.

The project was funded through a combination of private donations and historical preservation grants.

 See our updated Donors List here to see who all made this project possible. There are a lot of you!

Also follow the menu links to read up on the history of the Fort Ward neighborhood and the part it played in our nation’s network of seacoast defenses and wartime codebreaking. We’re proud of our heritage and pleased to share it with you.

Friends of Fort Ward and the Fort Ward Community Hall project thank these organizations for their generous support through partnerships and contributions:
