The picturesque Point Ruston Ferry sailed by Burien on Sunday. Built in 1936 by the Bath Iron Works Corporation in Maine, the ferry first served as a ferry for the Navy in Hawaii. The ferry was originally named the Aquidneck and was retired from naval use in October 1971 and transferred to Washington five years later to serve as a ferry between Stielacoom and Anderson Island with the Pierce County Ferry System as the MV Steilacom. Once again it was retired and then restored as the Point Ruston. It is now used to promote the high end Point Ruston development near Point Defiance Park and is available for parties and other rentals.

Since 2007, The B-Town Blog is Burien’s multiple award-winning hyperlocal news/events website dedicated to independent journalism.
