Kitsap County is a forested glacial till plain and a peninsular
area located in the center of Puget Sound to the immediate
west of Seattle. Two prominent land forms, the Kitsap Peninsula
and Bainbridge Island, make up this maritime county of inlets
and islands. Kitsap County, name for Indian Chief Kitsap (meaning
"brave"), was created by the Territorial Legislature on January
1956 bulletin from the County Agricultural Data Series created by NASS, then known as the Crop and Livestock
Reporting Service. Links are to different chapters within the bulletin and are in Adobe PDF format.
