This is the culmination of our annual confederacy! Bands,
burlesque, bars and breath-taking displays of daring-do! We've seconded
Building 202: The Evacuated Barracks at Fort

Deep under the sea, tucked behind buried rocks, lies the Giant
Pacific Octopus. With one arm stretched out to ward off intruders, she
stands guard for the Brass Screw Confederacy's cave of treasures--its Library
of Curiosities. This is a place where only members in good standing
are allowed, a secret space where they delight in the oddities of the
sea...their very own "odditorium." You may visit, but only if you are
part of the Confederacy. And only if you can pass under the arm of the
GPO unharmed. Then, and only then, will you be allowed to octopi this
eclectic miniature edifice and see the sea's most precious gifts. Sponsored by the Port Townsend Marine Science Center. Room designed by Samantha Berger.
