We are pleased to announce the opening of the trail! A grant from the Birkenfeld Fund by way of the Seattle Foundation made this possible. A group of invitees were present for a ribbon-cutting, trail tour and luncheon. We offer our thanks to everyone who attended, and to all the Board members and community members who worked hard on this trail!
Check out the photo gallery of updates from the amazing summer of hard work on rehabilitating the Worthington House! We are thrilled to be so close to our goals. Huge thanks go out to the many hands that have made this happen.

Quilcene “dip and drip” event at Worthington Park… Update: IT’S GOING GREAT!
We are coating the cedar shingles which are part of the new third floor finish. The shingles need to be dipped in finish, allowed to drip momentarily, back brushed, and placed on a drying rack. We truly need volunteers to help us accomplish this goal.
Don’t miss out on your opportunity to be a part of the beautiful mansard roof.
We work from 9 to 4 on Wednesdays and Saturdays. 3 days for drying. Work 1 or 2 hours or more. Whatever works for you! Doughnuts and coffee are provided. Some of us bring lunches. Hope to see you soon. ~ From your Quilcene Museum V.P. Cleone Telling
In the photo below: Eric and Jeremy from Nieman Construction teepeed shingles to dry for bay window roofing at Worthington House. Kathi, Carol, Marita and Cleone painted window trims for the mansard roof. Over 400 hours of volunteerism this summer!
Come join us as a part of the mansion’s history. Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays.
Oh, we will have a ‘sip’, to go with that dip and drip, after we bring in the gold medal (all 9,000 shingles are coated) and we get together for a victory party.
So, on Wednesdays and Saturdays from nine a.m. to five p.m., please come by and take a one to two hour shift for this event, at the mansion. Such a deal – free parking, opportunity to meet new people, learn the skill of ‘dipping and dripping’ and bring in the ‘gold’ for the third floor mansard roof!
The work needs to be done now as the good weather is our guide. Wear your paint clothes.
Please call David Satterlee, the ‘dip and drip’ coordinator at 765-4810 for more information or just show up!
The game is on!

Recently the Worthington Mansion rehabilitation received some very nice exposure in the PT Leader Newspaper!
EDITORIAL: The Queen of Quilcene
Jun 22, 2016 by Scott Wilson
The Quilcene Revival is in full upswing. The number of successful new businesses, civic activities, remodels and the associated community pride is on a sharp upward curve.
At the center of the hopes and dreams of the Emerald Towns of Hood Canal is the rehabilitation of the 1892 Hamilton-Worthington Victorian mansion, part of a 10-acre parcel that an almost all-volunteer crew is turning into Worthington Park, alongside the Little Quilcene River.
All of Jefferson County should take note of this effort and support it if possible. The end result will be a spectacular restoration of Quilcene’s best and largest Victorian home – 17 rooms – for events of all kinds, alongside a performance stage and a beautiful park…
Please head over to the Worthington Park Website and check it out in full!
Again, special thanks to Scott Wilson and the PT Leader.
