Paul Luvera Sr. Memorial Highway
An Italian immigrant who exemplified the fulfillment of the American dream, Paul N. Luvera, Sr.'s life was dedicated to public service. He was an Anacortes grocer, a community activist, a state senator, and, in later years, a totem pole carver. He served numerous civic organizations and committees and spearheaded the drive to build a community swimming pool. A section of State Route 20, where flooding occurred annually, was reconstructed due to his efforts while serving in the Washington State Senate (1953-1957).
