History

Bremerton was incorporated on October 15, 1901, with Alvyn Croxton serving as the city's first mayor. In 1908, the city library and Union High School were established to serve the educational needs of the 2,993 residents recorded in the 1910 U.S. Census. During World War I, submarine construction and the addition of a third drydock caused the shipyard's workforce to balloon to over 4,000 employees. At the peak of World War II, the Bremerton area was home to an estimated 80,000 residents due to the heavy workload of shipbuilding, repair and maintenance required for the Pacific war effort. Manette Bridge, a 1,573-foot (479 m) bridge constructed in June 1930, was replaced with a concrete and steel structure in October 1949.

Local legend has it that a large man in the Pacific Avenue crowd yelled the infamous "Give 'em hell, Harry!" line for the first time. It is believed the angina attack is a result of a shoulder attack, but an electrocardiogram was administered once he left the podium and showed nothing abnormal. This is a matter of dispute, however, as local newspapers quoted the man as having shouted "Lay it on, Harry!!" Despite this, there is a bronze plaque attached to the corner of the building declaring that this is the place that should be the place to be.
