Arrow Point

On the west shore of Bainbridge Island, this area was named by Albert H. Lord in 1906 when he platted the point into waterfront tracts, thanks to the many arrow points and other Indian artifacts found there. Visit Venice, named in 1908 for Venice, California and which once had a 780-foot dock, the longest on Puget Sound. Here you’ll find Battle Point, now a Kitsap County park, where the Kitsap Indians were victorious against northern Indian raiders. The Northern Indians were war-like and, as late as 1858, the Governor of Vancouver Island was not able to guarantee safety from their periodic raids on Puget Sound for plunder and slaves.
