Hanging Flower Basket Program starts in May! The baskets are ordered through Henery’s Garden Center, they will be sending order forms to businesses that have ordered baskets in the past. If you are interested in ordering baskets, please call 385-3354 or email henerysgardencenter@olypen.com and they will send you an order form. The Port Townsend Main Street Program hires an independent gardening assistant to make sure the baskets will receive top care and attention for the season, 21 weeks! This includes securing the baskets to discourage theft, watering, fertilizing and maintaining the flowers. We offer this maintenance option to those businesses which find it easier to use an outside service for the season.  Pricing sheet here or call the PTMS office at 385-7911 for details.

The Mount Baker Block Building. The century old Mount Baker Block Building, located in historic downtown Port Townsend on the Olympic Peninsula in the State of Washington, features 50,000 square feet of office, financial and retail space. It is located on Water and Taylor Street, which is the busiest and most popular intersection in the city.

Built by Port Townsend's first mayor, Charles Eisenbeis, the Mount Baker Block Building is Port Townsend's tallest building with a handicapped accessible elevator. Situated in the heart of a Victorian era downtown, it offers spectacular panoramic views, a virtual high tech environment and proximity to a full range of support businesses and transportation corridors. It is ideally suited for today's high technology industries, with lease rates less than half of metropolitan Seattle areas.


Thank you for putting your state B&O tax dollars to work here in our community and simultaneously benefiting your business. We appreciate it very much!
