Keystone is a small unincorporated community, located  3 miles south of Coupeville.  The Washington State Ferry leaves from Keystone Harbor across the Admiralty inlet to deliver ferry travelers to the Olympic Peninsula via Port Townsend. The name Keystone was created by Island County government as a promotional logo for the Alaskan-Yukon-Pacific Exposition, an event similar to the world’s fair, held in Seattle in 1909. The idea was to capitalize on sea traffic that could only enter Puget Sound via the Strait of Juan de Fuca, which goes right past Whidbey. The full logo read, “Whidbey Island, the Keystone of the Northwest.”
