Poulsbo Makes Quality Heating Feel Right at Home
Poulsbo may be the smallest of the four cities in Kitsap County, but it is a large part of Quality Heating’s service network and customer base.
The city was founded in the 1880s by Norwegian immigrant Jørgen Eliason, who was joined by other Scandinavians who relocated from Midwestern states. They were drawn here by the area’s rich resources, and by a landscape similar to their native home. The settlement was connected by boats to other areas of the region, including the Puget Sound mosquito fleet, which was eventually usurped by highways built in the early 20th century.
Modern-day downtown Poulsbo maintains a Scandinavian theme to honor its early immigrant history and is a popular regional tourist destination. One of its local products, Poulsbo Bread, is made locally at Sluys Bakery and used to be sold internationally. Many visitors arrive by boat; there are three marinas near the town, and the town’s harbor is an excellent anchorage.
Poulsbo’s Fish Park, centered on the Dogfish Creek estuary at the north end of Liberty Bay, is a 40-acre (16 ha) park in Poulsbo. The park was started in 2002 by a group of community members and governments including the City of Poulsbo and the Suquamish Tribe.
First Lutheran Church opened in 1886 atop the hill, overlooking downtown Poulsbo, and was originally Førdefjord Lutheran.
