About Us

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. Electrified 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 eclectic vision that draws hundreds of thousands of guests every year.

           …and
what’s this Steampunk-thing, anyhow?

First, here’s a One-page Steampunk Primer
…then you can read the Story of the Brass Screw Confederacy….
…and finally gear up with our Steampunk Wardrobe Primer.

Ready to get involved?

And you can address any general questions to our stalwart team of captains at info@brass-screw.org.
