Fort Worden Officer Residences

Fort Worden State Park is in Port Townsend, WA. It’s a wonderful use of a retired military facility. Lots of great hiking trails and nice beaches with views of the Cascade Mountains and Admiralty Inlet. It was one of the sites used for the movie “An Officer and a Gentleman”.

I was struck by how the repeating pattern from the stairs is echoed by the pattern of the roofs.

This is one of the door to the old powerhouse at Fort Worden State Park in Port Townsend, WA. I’m not sure how well it operates now (the door, not the powerhouse). I would love to hear it being opened… I bet it really screeches.

Clam Cannery, waterfront view

This is the Clam Cannery building (1885) in Port Townsend. I was really enjoying a mid-winter sunny day and as the sun was starting to set the light really brought out the textures in the face of the building.

They just don’t do buildings like they used to… I really like the ornate trim on the old buildings in Port Townsend… this one dating to 1889 … about the real heyday of construction of a lot of the downtown area.

Detail of the Hastings Building, Port Townsend, Washington.

Construction of the building began in 1889 and was completed in 1890. The space was originally offices and retail space. It is currently undergoing some remodeling. The building was recognized as a registered state historic place in 1972.
