Original owner and pioneers John and Jane Kineth took the overland route to Whidbey in 1853 for their First Class land claim, one of the first 8 claims on Whidbey Island. John was born in Bavaria in 1828. Then at age 10 he moved to Springfield, Illinois. His wife Jane was originally from Athens, Ohio. Jane was a descendant of the Mayflower pilgrim, Robert Carter. The Kineth House was their retirement home in Coupeville.
