San Juan County is a county located in the Salish Sea in the far northwestern corner of the U.S. state of Washington. It comprises most of the San Juan Islands. The County is named after San Juan Island, which was reportedly named after St. John the Baptist (San Juan Bautista) by the Spanish explorer Francisco de Eliza, in 1791. The area that now constitutes San Juan County was part of Whatcom County until October 31, 1873. The county seat and the county's only incorporated city is Friday Harbor, on San Juan Island. The 2010 Census reported a population of 15,769 for San Juan County. It is the smallest of Washington's 39 counties in land area. It is the only county in Washington to have no state highways.
