Celebrate 'places that matter' on Bainbridge Island

Henry Groos House

What are the places on Bainbridge Island that are meaningful to you and make our community a great place to live? The Historic Preservation Commission (HPC) is participating in the 'This Place Matters' campaign this month and hopes you'll get involved, too! 

'This Place Matters' is a national effort led by the National Trust for Historic Preservation (NTHP). The campaign encourages communities to celebrate the places they care about by sharing photos and stories.

Here's how you can participate:

  • During the month of May, pick up a 'This Place Matters' sign at the Planning & Community Development counter.
  • Take photos at places (building, structure, etc.) that matter most to you - in groups or on your own!
  • Share your photos on Facebook and Twitter with the hashtag #ThisPlaceMattersBI and tell us why this place matters to you. You can also send it to and we'll share it for you!
  • The HPC will pick one photo to be featured in a future COBI Connects newsletter.
