Quilcene Historical Museum in Worthington Park
- Arts, Entertainment & Culture
In Spring 1991, a modest vision of a “grass roots museum” for the North Hood Canal region was formed. Interested in education and landmark preservation for her home, Eilleen Worthington approached the museum in July 2011 and sold her property in 2013. With determination and volunteer help, the Quilcene Historical Museum launched the formation of a community treasure and a one-of-a-kind events center celebrating the rich culture and history of its communities.
Today, Worthington Park is a magnificent rustic property with old world charm. A unique historical and cultural center hosting major public and private events and lodging. The 1892 Late Victorian Worthington Mansion with French 2nd Empire Mansard roof, has 17 rooms, 3 stories, and ADA accessibility. The 10 acre outdoor grounds offer picturesque sites with over 660 feet of river frontage on the Little Quilcene River, along with the wide open meadow, historic barn, outdoor theatre, Linger Longer Stage, and the Historical Museum.
