Jefferson County Historical Society, Museum, and Rothschild House [WA]

The Society maintains a Museum and the Rothschild House. The Museum, housed in the restored 1892 Port Townsend City Hall building's former municipal court room, fire hall and jail spaces, presents exhibits illustrating the lively history of local communities born in waterfront forests over 150 years ago. The 1868 Rothschild House invites visitors to step back to the 1800s; it is virtually unchanged from a hundred years ago.

The society offers research library access, tours, educational programs, lectures, and occasional recreational and educational events; the museum offers exhibits; the house offers exhibits and tours.
