Birch Bay has a rich history that goes back thousands of years, and in fact Captain George Vancouver landed in the Discovery in his Expedition in 1792 on Cottonwood Beach with his Muster that included Peter Puget (Sound), Joseph Whidbey ( Island) & Joseph Baker (Mt). Factual legend has it that Captain Vancouver stopped in Birch Bay during 1792 Expedition and the Admiralty used the Black Birch Trees and to brew beer, a common staple on the long voyage- they named Birch Bay after the same tree.
