Treasure Cove Shellfish Farm in Washington

Host Kevin Riley says:

Members of early sailing expeditions of Puget Sound named much of our area.  The first was Capt. George Vancouver and his Second Lieutenant Peter Puget who explored Puget Sound in May 1792.  Almost 50 years later in May 1841 Admiral Wilkes expedition named Stretch Island for Samuel Stretch, a gunner's mate with the expedition.  Using his wit he then named the smaller island to the north Reach Island.  Reach Island had been known as Oak Island prior to this.  Joseph Pickard was the first to homestead Reach Island in 1885.  He left in 1890 and the island was not inhabited until 1905 when Alfred W. Zizz bought Reach Island for $1,000. Alfred and his wife Natella raised two children; Virginia and Zane. Alfred remained on the island until 1952 when it was sold to a development group and it was renamed Treasure Island.   In 1991 The Riley Family planted their first Oyster and Clam beds and named there area Treasure Cove because of the close distance to Treasure Island.
