  2. Horse breaks Commercial Avenue (1909)

    April 14, 2021, All Day

    The Anacortes Creamery Co. presented the City with a bill for $25 for injuries sustained by the company’s gray horse, which broke through the planking on Commercial Avenue between Second and Third streets on April 14, the Anacortes American reported. As a result, the council passed a resolution condemning Commercial Avenue from Third Street to Railroad Avenue and ordered Street Supt. Baker to close it to wagon traffic at once, pending the improvement of the street. Commercial Avenue had been “paved” with old-growth planking in 1890.

  3. Earwigs infest Anacortes (1922)

    April 24, 2021, All Day

    Anacortes residents were warned in April 1922 about an epidemic of European Earwigs infesting six city blocks of the town. A survey made by the county horticulturist E. D. Hunter revealed the information, sending the town into a panic about the garden pest. With 50-90 eggs laid by any one female, the pest had the potential to spread rapidly. The local Boy Scouts troop would take on the challenge of exterminating the bugs, using a poison concoction of 1 gallon of lime sulfur solution, 1 gallon black leaf 40, 1 pound arsenate of lead and 35 gallons of water.
