B.C., the War of 1812
& Blade Runner.
Bainbridge Island was formed during the last
when the 3,000-foot-thick Vashon Glacier scraped out a
bunch of places including Bainbridge.
During the War of 1812, Commodore William (don’t call
me Bill) Bainbridge provided such brave leadership as
commander of the U.S.S. Constitution, in 1841 Lt. Charles
Wilkes named the island after him.
And in 1982, the same year the movie Blade Runner
came out, Bill (don’t call me William) Schmidt opened
up Schmidt’s Home Appliance. And here we are today,
dedicated to the same level of top quality brands and
products backed by service after the sale.
