Communities


Freeland, the fastest growing community on Whidbey Island, was free land that originally enticed settlers to homestead this section of Whidbey Island.  The land, unfortunately, is no longer free, but many people are still finding it a good place to settle.  The residents of this unincorporated haven have geared up for growth with town hall meetings and planning discussions dubbed Visioning 2025.

They are wise to protect this gem, overlooking beautiful Holmes Harbor with panoramic views of both the Cascade and Olympic Mountains.  This commercial center provides a wide variety of retail shopping and dining options, and its south location keeps it mainland accessible.

Nichols Brothers Boat Builders, Inc., provides an industrial base, building tugboats,catamarans, and river cruise ships.

Holmes Harbor, three-miles long and less that a half-mile wide, makes fishing, boating and sailing opportunities convenient.  Freeland Park has playground equipment, picnic sites, and boat launching facilities.
