Port Townsend Waterfront Tours

I got a note from the Jefferson County Historical Society that they will conduct tours of the historic Port Towsend, Wash. waterfront during the city's annual Victorian Festival March 16-19. [link to tour: look for "Maritime History & Wooden Boat School Tour"] The tours will include a visit to the Northwest School of Wooden Boatbuilding in Port Hadlock. Port Townsend is one of the oldest towns in the Pacific Northwest and was the first official port of entry in Washington State. Much of its Victorian era downtown is preserved, and the city has made its maritime history a major component of its heritage tourism program.
