For information about Port Townsend, including a schedule of events, contact the Washington Tourism Development Division, 101 General Administration Building, Olympia, WA 98504-0613 (Tel: 206-753-5600) or the Chamber of Commerce, 2437 Slims Way, Port Townsend, WA 98368 (Tel: 206-385-2722). Twice a year, in May and September, the town offers tours of its historic houses. These have become very popular, so be sure to make hotel reservations well in advance. Two of the handsomest Queen Anne houses are bed and breakfasts now: the Starrett House, built in 1889, and the James House, built two years later.

We hope you enjoy our work.
