Welcome to Magnuson Park, home of the Sand Point Naval Air Station Historic District and site of the first around-the-world flight.

Friends of Magnuson Park is the only non-profit organization dedicated to its historic preservation.

That has been our purpose since 2002, to preserve and interpret the long and rich history of Sand Point from its pre-contact uses by indigenous peoples through its role in local aviation and military history to today. Towards this goal we will continue to advocate for the long-term preservations of resources within the Historic District and proudly bring you educational exhibits and historic programming at the Park.

GET INVOLVED

SHARE YOUR MEMORIES & PRESERVE SAND POINT'S HISTORY

Friends is assembling oral histories, video and photographic collections that help tell the story of Sand Point for future generations, so many of which are locked away in private collections across the Pacific Northwest.

VOLUNTEER WITH FRIENDS

ENVISIONING A VISITOR CENTER

Imagine the long-vacant former Base gas station brought back to life as
Magnuson Park's first Visitor Center. Sound exciting? We think so too!

A request for proposals will be open soon to revive Building 41.
Help us make this vision a reality by making a pledge of support today.
