About Us

The Hansville Historical Society is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organiza­tion dedicated to preserving and sharing the history of Hansville and surrounding areas. We maintain an archive of historical documents and other artifacts as well as a collection of personal narrative interviews, family history, and photographs acquired during the creation of our book. In furtherance of this mission, the Society works to increase a cultural and historical awareness of the North Kitsap County area through educating the general public.


Meetings are the third Friday every other month in the East Room of the Greater Hansville Community Center at 6778 Buck Lake Road NE. Meetings are held on odd months – January, March, May, July, September, and November. Each meeting we present a program of historical interest to the community. Please consider joining us. Our dues are $15 a year. The memories are priceless!
