Anacortes Museum Presents: The Skating Rinks of Anacortes

Wednesday, May 10, 2023

Roller skating was a huge hit in Anacortes in the early half of the 20th century. Many a kid, teen or young adult would spend an evening cruising around the roller rink with their friends or family. The earliest mention of roller skating in the city was in 1905 at a building called the Bowery on Cap Sante. The last mention was in 1954 with the Victory Roller Rink located in what is now the Anacortes City Hall building. Over the 50-year history of roller skating, the locations and the names changed but the fun always stayed the same.
