Winslow

Winslow is the name of the downtown area of the city of Bainbridge Island, Washington, and is the original name of the city. It encompasses the area around the main street, Winslow Way, and is made up of approximately 1.5 square miles (3.9 km2) overlooking Eagle Harbor.

Named for shipbuilder Winslow Hall,[1] the city of Winslow was incorporated on August 23, 1947; on February 28, 1991, the City of Winslow annexed the rest of the island, officially becoming the City of Bainbridge Island, Washington.

The street runs about ten city blocks, and is grounded on both sides by local businesses, including a hardware store (closed as of Spring 2005), a bookstore, several galleries, and multiple restaurants and bakeries. A ferry terminal, with service to Seattle’s Colman Dock, boards at the east end of Winslow Way.
