    Vanishing Murals of Port Townsend: A Walking Tour A one-mile walking tour with 10 stops $15 for members, $20 for non-members Saturdays in July and August at 11:00AM Limited to groups of 12 Throughout the 19th and early 20th centuries, advertising murals were ubiquitous throughout the country. Large, vibrant signs painted on buildings once lined the streets of most towns in America, usually advertising a product or service. Municipal property, commercial buildings, and even the sides of barns were covered in advertisements for everything from cars to shaving cream to beer. Port Townsend was no different, and these colorful murals contributed to the distinctive character of this busting community. Join us for this one-hour unique take on a historic walking tour and discover these faded “ghost” murals - sometimes hiding in plain sight!
