Sunnyside up! Pioneer cemetery serves Washington’s oldest city

Photo detail

‘Gone but not forgotten’ reads the tombstone for Jacob Jenne, framed by an iron-gated entrance covered in ivy. Jenne’s home still stands in Coupeville and is today a bed and breakfast. According to the Island County Historical Society, Jenne operated a hotel so popular for its cigars, wines and liquors that its bar extended into the adjacent building….which housed a temperance organization.
