Haunted Histories & Mysteries

Be Open to the World of the Unknown at HAUNTED HISTORIES & MYSTERIES OF PORT TOWNSEND. This year’s event has been postponed until October 29-31, 2021.

The Victorian Seaport of Port Townsend, WA was founded in 1851. Our colorful town has many tales to tell—of shipwrecks, shanghaiing, lost loves, unexplained events and a haunted past that is felt even today. Be open to the possibilities. Come for a weekend of ghostly fun along the waterfront at one of our town’s newest events: “Haunted Histories & Mysteries of Port Townsend.”

Stay tuned for exciting updates in 2021!
