Anderson-Island is part of Pierce County and is the southernmost island in Puget Sound. It is accessed only by boat or by a 20 minute ferry ride from Steilacoom. In 2007, a second ferry, the Steilacoom II, was put into operation to work with the aging Christine Anderson ferry. Anderson Island's population is around 900 based on the 2000 census and the population jumps to over 4,000 during the summer months. As a retirement destination, the median age is around 54 years. As an island, residents of Anderson Island must plan their trips to the mainland for work, shopping and entertainment. Anderson Island is approximately 5 miles long and 3 miles wide with paved roads throughout. The island was first settled in 1870. The primary industry at the time was the sale of wood to the steamers that came into Amsterdam Bay. Additional industries included brick making, farming and fishing. Anderson Island Historical Society is located at the landmark Johnson Farm. The society runs the annual Salmon Bake and Apple Cider Squeeze.

Evenings are usually warm with a light ocean breeze. Temperatures range from low 30s in winter to mid 80s in summer. Coastal conditions are generally much more harsh than those in the Puget Sound. @
