Worthington Mansion

 Join us for an Open House at the newly restored Worthington Mansion at Worthington Park. The mansion is the only example of a Victorian residence of this scale in rural Jefferson County.

Built from 1891 to 1892, the residence was originally a spectacular 17-room, 3 story mansard-style Victorian mansion built by Millard Fillmore Hamilton, who came to Quilcene in the 1880’s. With his business partner Squire McArdle, he platted the original Quilcene townsite. WJ Worthington and his wife, Grace, purchased the mansion in 1907. It remained in the Worthington family until 2012.

Upon the passing of Eileen Worthington, the home's last resident, the Quilcene Historical Museum arranged to purchase the property with a view to restoring the mansion as a centerpiece for social and community activities on its lovely grounds. A multi-phased project involving countless volunteer hours and generous donations has brought the restoration nearly to completion. The Quilcene Historical Museum is pleased to offer this open house, free of charge, to showcase this jewel of our local history.
