The village streets of this once bustling logging town haven't changed much since the 1850s. The original New England Victorian-style homes have been preserved, along with the town's general store and stately church.
Port Gamble is a National Historic site. While you're there, visit the hilltop cemetery and look for the grave of the first US Navy man killed in battle in the Northwest. Prior to its closing in 1995, the Port Gamble Mill was the oldest continuously operating sawmill operating in North America.
The Port Gamble General Store is still just that, selling clothing, a wide variety of specialty gifts, toys and gourmet foods. A restaurant within the General Store features homemade favorites. There are also antique shops, a trading company featuring local artists, a day spa, a now famous truffle shop and more.
Port Gamble hosts a number of festivals throughout the year. Visit Port Gamble Township website for details.
