The mission of the Fox Island Historical Society is to enrich the greater community through the discovery, preservation, and sharing of knowledge about the history of Fox Island.

The Fox Island Historical Society held its first meeting on February 22, 1896, and has held a Washington’s Birthday potluck every year since. The Historical Society was reactivated in 1959 and opened the first Museum in the Nichols Community Center. The present Museum building opened in 1980.
