PORT TOWNSEND — Jefferson County kicks off the celebration of its 150th anniversary with a reception Friday.
The event will take place from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the county courthouse, 1820 Jefferson St.
The reception includes Jefferson County Historical Society’s exhibit documenting 150 years of Jefferson County history.
Spearheaded by museum director Bill Tennent and the historical society, the exhibit showcases historic photographs from throughout the county as well as key events over the decades.
“Certificates, maps, pins, ribbons from county fairs, quotes from people around the county, teachers’ attendance records from Queets, Kalaloch and Quilcene, tickets to events, and a lot of things that people might be able to identify with, comprise the exhibit,” Tennent said. “It’s a timeline that puts things in perspective. . . .”
The exhibit will remain in the courthouse lobby through mid-January.
