About the Brass Screw Confederacy


Step into Port Townsend, the City of Dreams, and immerse yourself in a frontier town that lives steampunk year-round. Throughout the 19th century the "Key City" was a town looking to the future. Electirified homes and railway, a sense of destiny, aspirations to grandeur...and then it all fell down. The city Time Forgot. But today you can visit one of 3 Victorian seaports in the US, a community dedicated to authentic oddity, eccentric art, and an ecclectic vision that draws hundreds of thousands of guests every year.
