Once a camping ground used by the Suquamish tribe, and the fabled birthplace of Chief Seattle, Blake Island is now a 475-acre marine state park. In 1961, for the upcoming World’s Fair in Seattle, local caterer Bill Hewitt created Tillicum Village: a tourist attraction showcasing Northwest Coast Native American arts, food, and culture. A longhouse with a stage was constructed, as was a 324-foot public pier to receive visitors by boat.

Tillicum facility under lease, operated in conjunction with the Washington State Parks and Recreation Commission.
