Jefferson County Historical Museum
Jefferson County Historical Museum Review
The 1892 City Hall building contains the Jefferson County Historical Museum and old city jail, where author Jack London spent a night on his way to the Klondike in the summer of 1879. The basement cells still contain balls, chains and shackles. On the way downstairs, walk through the old courtroom and fire hall, which houses a maritime exhibit, horse-drawn Victorian hearse and the original Haller Fountain. (A replica stands at the base of the stairs at Tayler and Washington streets.) Here you'll also find exhibits of Native American artifacts, vintage photos of the Olympic Peninsula, and displays chronicling Port Townsend's past. The upstairs chambers are still used for weekly city council meetings.
