Description This is a painting of a light house just minutes from my home where I grew up. I love it and it is special to me. The lighthouse is located at the apex of an isolated sandy beach littered with driftwood perfect for long, leisurely strolls, especially during low tides.Sunsets paint the sky a searing orange. Whidbey Island, Mount Baker, Mount Rainier and the crest of downtown Seattle all are within eyeshot.When Navy Lt. Charles Wilkes conducted his famous exploration of Puget Sound in 1841, he named the spit Point No Point because, from the ship, the point appeared larger than it actually was.The local native tribes called it Hahdskus, or 'Long Nose.'A rock just beyond the duplex marks where the Treaty of Point No Point was signed in 1855, and thus where the tribes of the Northern Kitsap Peninsula ceded ownership of their lands to Washington Territory and Gov. Isaac Stevens.Like the point, the lighthouse from a distance appears larger than it actually is. Hansville Several years after the Point No Point Light Station had been established, loggers and fishermen began to settle in the area. One of the first was a Norwegian herring fisherman who settled nearby in 1893. Other Norwegians soon followed, including Hans Zachariasen, for whom the nearby town of Hansville was named. The Point No Point Light Station was important to the new Hansville community. The first schoolhouse was built nearby, and the station opened a post office in 1893. Mary Scannell, the lightkeepers wife, became the first postmistress
