JCHS exhibit designer, Becky Schurmann said, “We create a new textile exhibit in the house every year. This year we decided to feature some of the amazing handwork on textiles from our collection.

The Blue Gull Inn B&B is one of the first homes built in Port Townsend, WA. Our home was built by ND Hill in 1868. If you can imagine, our home was built 3 years after the end of the Civil War. ND Hill had a large family and needed a large home with a large dining room. Perfect for a Bed & Breakfast. Join us for a great Breakfast!!! ND Hill was our local pharmacist, back then a pharmacy is a combination today of a pharmacy and hardware store.
