Steamship Virginia V

The Virginia V is the last of the working steamships that were built to transport freight on Puget Sound before roads. In the early 1900's, there were hundreds of vessels like the Virginia V that ran regular routes between the islands, towns and beach communities on a daily basis.

The Virginia V was launched in 1922 from the shores of Vashion Island. Here original purpose was largely to haul passengers and farm goods to Seattle and Tacoma.

The Virginia V is maintained by the Virginia V Foundation, a non-proffit organization dedicated to preserving this historic steamship.
