Expanding opportunities in America’s cities

Northwest Maritime Center

Port Townsend, Wash.



The center serves as a cultural anchor in Port Townsend and a leader in the community’s broader endeavor to preserve and present the area’s maritime history and cultural heritage. This challenge grant supports the construction of a LEED-rated maritime facility, including an education building with classrooms and a boat shop and a maritime heritage and resource building with exhibits, conference space, an art gallery, and a library on a reclaimed brownfield site.
