first general store and post office that was built by Amos Bowman, civil engineer and town founder. The Anacortes Story, a book compiled by Dan Wollam and published by the Anacortes Museum of History and Art in 1965, explains: "Bowman was the community's first postmaster. City was established on 160-acre tract on the northeast shore of Fidalgo island and expanded to its present limits as rival factions pressed its development in the turbulent months of 1890. Bowman's early dream was to see Anacortes, with railroads leading the way, emerge as the foremost Pacific Coast link with the orient. He died in 1894 believing that his intense efforts had met with failure. The store was east of Commercial in the vicinity of Q. Among those pictured is pioneer settler William Allard in the wagon."
