San Juan Island National Historical Park

San Juan Island Historical Park marks the site of the American and English Camps during the Pig War—a boundary dispute between Great Britain and the United States. In 1859, an American killed a stray British-owned pig, sparking international debate over ownership of the island. After a 12-year joint occupation, Kaiser Wilhelm I of Germany as arbitrator awarded the islands to the U.S. Today, the San Juan Island National Historical Park includes historic structures from both British and American camps and are excellent places to hike, picnic, play on the beach, experience wildlife, and participate in programs, including living history events.
