Street of the Week: Rodal Court

Location: A tiny residential street running west off Sunrise Drive, north of Valley Road

History: Lucas Rodal delievered groceries with a wheelbarrow. It was just one of the many services the native Norwegian did for his adopted home. In the decades to come, his large family would continue the tradition of community involvement. Rodels have been active with, among other organizations, Rolling Bay Presbyterian Church, which sits on land formerly owned by the family.

This occasional Islander series explores the history of island street names, as compiled by Elinor Ringland and fellow Bainbridge Island Historical Society volunteers.  If you have an island road story to share, email Ringland at
