In honor of the 100th anniversary of the Log Cabin Museum (the Bartow House), the Sidney Museum and Arts Association welcomes you to a Historic Home and Garden Tour (with an Art Twist) in the City of Port Orchard's downtown residential and business areas. The area of the homes and businesses are in the original plat and first addition play of the town of Sidney (later renamed Port Orchard).
The original 1886 town plot of Sidney was bounded on the North by Bay Street, on the South by Division Street, on the East by Sidney Avenue and on the West by West Street. While visiting relatives in this area about 1885, Sidney Stevens of Ohio bought 88 acres on Port Orchard Bay from Robert Campbell, who had received the acreage in a land grant from the United States in 1881. Stevens returned to Ohio but left his son Frederick here to lay out and plat the town of Sidney.
