Founded in 1851, Port Townsend [1] is known for its remarkable collection of Victorian buildings, lively arts scene and scenic beauty. Port Townsend is a National Historic Landmark District recognized for its historic significance, one of only 2,500 such districts in the United States. A year-round calendar of events, independently-owned shops and inviting lodgings make Port Townsend a memorable destination. This guide was developed by the Port Townsend Main Street Program, a nonprofit organization committed to the preservation and economic vitality of the historic business districts, while maintaining our small town quality of life.
