Walking tours begin for season in Port Townsend

Jefferson County Historical Society walking tours begin Saturday, June 5, and continue through the end of September.

Historically costumed guides take visitors on entertaining tours of both downtown and uptown, pointing out the interesting architecture, unique history and colorful characters who built Port Townsend.

Walking Tours chairwoman Lynne Sterling says, "We have a lot of enthusiastic new guides this year as well as returning veterans. They are anxious to share their love of Port Townsend's exciting past with tourists and our own residents."

The downtown tours are at 2 p.m. Saturdays beginning at the Jefferson County Museum (admission included).

The uptown tours are at 2 p.m. Sundays beginning at the Rothschild House Museum (admission included). Tours are free for JCHS members and $10 for nonmembers.
