 Brief History:

Island County is a county located in the U.S. state of Washington.  Its county seat is Coupeville, while its largest
 city is Oak Harbor. The county's name reflects the fact that it is composed entirely of islands. It contains two large
 islands, Whidbey and Camano, and seven smaller islands (Baby, Ben Ure, Deception, Kalamut, Minor, Smith, and
 Strawberry). Island County was created out of Thurston County on December 22, 1852, by the legislature of
 Oregon Territory, and is the eighth-oldest county in Washington. It originally encompassed what are now
 Snohomish, Skagit, Whatcom, and San Juan Counties.
