The Kiosk Project was created from the vision of the ULA President Mary Margaret Haugen. She knew the descendants of the people of this Island first hand, and heard their stories. Funded by the generosity of the Camano Island Community and the hardwork of the Ladies Aid, the three signs are a gift back to the Island.
The Pioneer Cemetery is the home of this educational and historical sign. Spend some time learning about Camano Island History and the families of the newcomers as they join families with the Kickialus tribe. You will find a wealth of information about the lives of the founders of Camano Island.

From the Kikiallus Tribe, to a Mill, to a Shipping Port, this kiosk tells the rich history of this area from the 1850's to the 1930's. The Old Utsaladdy kiosk is located at the Utsalady Boat Ramp, and comes with a territorial view of Utsalady Bay and the Saratoga Passage. You may even see a passing by whale or two.

From a Kikiallus Indian Village to the Town of Utsalady to a Beach Community, this kiosk follows the growth of commerce and community where the Ladies Aid Building was built and resides today. The New Utsalady kiosk is located in front of the Ladies Aid Building on Utsalady Road.
