Location of Vashon Island, Washington

Vashon Island is Puget Sound's largest island south of Admiralty Inlet. Part of unincorporated King County, Washington, it had a total population of 10,123 as of the 2000 census.

Vashon has two ferry terminals. The southern terminus of the Vashon Highway is the Tahlequah Ferry Terminal, connected to the Point Defiance neighborhood of Tacoma by a Washington State Ferries run. The northern terminus of the Vashon Highway is the Heights Dock at Point Vashon, which services the state ferry docks at Southworth, Fauntleroy, and Downtown Seattle.

Vashon Island was the home of novelist Betty MacDonald and the setting of her book Onions in the Stew. It is also home to 2004 Prohibition Party presidential nominee Gene Amondson.

Berkeley Breathed, author of the political satire comic strip Bloom County, resided on Vashon for some time as well. He wrote a children's book based on a bicycle in a tree. The real-life tree, growing around a bicycle, can be seen on the island.

The island was named on May 28, 1792, by the explorer George Vancouver after his friend James Vashon of the Royal Navy, who also explored the area on H.M.S. Alert. At that time, Vashon Island was separate from the neighbouring Maury Island, but today the town of Portage sits on an isthmus built by the U.S Army Corps of Engineers that connects the two.

Zip Code 98070
