Out and About in Port Washington

Port Washington, Wisconsin is my adopted home town. Originally from Michigan, I relocated to Wisconsin in 1984 and put down roots here. Port was established in 1835 as a fishing village on the western shore of Lake Michigan. Our historic downtown boasts the biggest collection of pre-Civil-War buildings in Wisconsin. Tourism promotions sometimes liken Port Washington to a New England village.

The sights of Port Washington have attracted me as a photographer for as long as I’ve lived here. I’ve taken pictures of this lovely city in all seasons. The galleries below showcase my work. The images in Parts One through Part Four were all made in June, 2021.

The images in Part Five were taken in 2013. I’ve enjoyed taking pictures of this photogenic little town and its lakefront for many years. Those familiar with Port will notice some subtle differences. Harry’s Restaurant on Franklin Street is now gone. Condos have been built around the Inner Harbor. Small businesses, bars, restaurants, and festivals come and go. The Harborview Hotel was once a Best Western and started as a Holiday Inn.

Lots More!
