Our Vibrant Community
Port Townsend and Jefferson County are home to a diverse, vital, and vibrant population. It is an area of many contradictions - Victorian romance and 21st century reality, counter-culturists and digital entrepreneurs. Hardworking craftspeople make boats, guitars, and art. Writers and musicians abound. Craft breweries, wineries, and restaurants tempt every palate.
The community's backbone is strengthened by both young families and retirees. Individualism and collaboration thrive in the intellectually stimulating environment. Local workshops and retreats make it the perfect place to join in or get away from it all.
This visually stunning area draws nearly one million visitors per year. The resident population hovers around 9,500. We hope you will come see for yourself why it is a wonderful place to call home.
