Anderson Island (WA) (Images of America) by Elizabeth Galentine, Anderson Island Historical Society

Named for Alexander Caulfield Anderson, the chief trader for the Hudsons Bay Company at Fort Nisqually, Anderson Island has an early history of brick making, logging, farming, and fishing. Johnsons Landing, on the north end of the island, was the site where mosquito fleet steamships could refuel and purchase lumber for delivery as far south as San Francisco. The first permanent settlers on the island arrived from Denmark in the early 1870s, with others of Scandinavian descent coming shortly thereafter. The southernmost island in Washington States Puget Sound, accessible only by boat or ferry from Steilacoom, Anderson Island boasts two freshwater lakes, two marinas, and a golf course. Bucolic Anderson Island received national press coverage in 2005 when the flower fairy anonymously left floral bouquets on doorsteps, a practice that continues to this day.
