The City of Poulsbo is in Kitsap County, located on the Kitsap Peninsula west of Seattle. Originally settled by Norwegian immigrants in the late 1800's on Liberty Bay, a fjord of Puget Sound, Poulsbo continues to maintain its Scandinavian atmosphere through its architecture, celebrations, and hospitality. Holding to its Scandinavian heritage has earned the City the nickname "Little Norway". Three military facilities are located within the Kitsap County; Bremerton’s Puget Sound Naval Shipyard, Naval Submarine Base Bangor, and Keyport’s Naval Undersea Warfare Center. Consolidated in 2004 as Naval Base Kitsap, it is the largest naval installation in the Northwest. With a population of 10,850, many of Poulsbo's residents are employed at one of the federal bases or commutes to metropolitan Seattle by ferry.
Natural beauty surrounds the town with the Olympic mountains to the west, Mount Rainier to the south, and big city amenities can be found across Puget Sound. The City of Poulsbo is a great place to live and work!
