Approximately 20 miles west of Seattle, Bremerton is a small town on the Kitsap Peninsula, separated by the Port Washington Narrows channel. Covering 9 square miles of land and 11 square miles of water, Bremerton’s mild climate is one of the many reasons people come to the area. Named as one of the most livable cities in the United States by Money Magazine in 1990, the city has maintained its reputation as a great place to raise a family or enjoy a night out on the town. Bremerton is also home to Puget Sound Naval Shipyard, one of the region's largest employers.
Bremerton apartments for rent are near all the resources one may want in a town. From a 36-hole golf course to 2 miles of sandy shoreline, it’s no surprise that Bremerton’s population has remained steady for the past twenty years. According to statistics by the U.S. Census Bureau, the population of Bremerton is around 35,000.
Living in Bremerton, WA
The history of Bremerton began in the 1890s after a Navy Lieutenant A.B. Wyckoff purchased 190 acres of waterfront property on Sinclair Inlet. Since the land was so close to the Puget Sound Navy Yard, German immigrant, William Bremer noticed the economic potential of building a city in the area. Bremer, who named the town after himself, arranged a sale with the Navy of 190 acres for $50 per acre. After the town was incorporated in October 1891, it began to develop. During the First World War the city employed more than 5,000 people who worked on the construction of Navy equipment, including a submarine and a dry dock.
Similar to many other towns in western Washington, economic development began with the lumber and timber industries. While the city’s growth was stunted during the 1970s and 1980s, it began to prosper again in the 1990s. Today, Bremerton is rich with business development, city attractions and public spaces.
