Fort Casey & Keystone State Park
Originally the major focus of the "Triangle of Death" designed to prevent a naval invasion, Fort Casey now welcomes visitors to its battlements and the charming Admiralty Head Lighthouse. The fort's 10-inch “disappearing”guns are now aimed across busy shipping lanes filled with freighters, and passenger ships, as well as naval cruisers, aircraft carriers, and submarines. Don't miss beautiful Crockett Lake and Keystone Spit, adjacent to Fort Casey. Both abound with birds and marine life. Unforgettable vistas of water and mountains await. Take the ferry to Port Townsend from here or check out the activities at the Casey Conference Center. Keystone State Park is a favorite of fishermen and scuba divers Located three miles south of Coupeville on Highway 20. From Coupeville, go south on Hwy 20 watching for signs to the park and to Keystone Ferry Landing.

History: The Tyee Restaurant originally began as a small, single room barber shop located on the corner of Main Street and Terry Road. In 1926, Mr. and Mrs. Robert Partridge purchased the building from Walt Stoddard and added a dining room. In 1929, the structure was moved to its present location and the second story was added. Pat’s Place contained a restaurant, hotel, barber shop and confectionery store. It became a landmark in the area due to the friendliness of the Partridge’s. Pat’s Place sponsored the local baseball team, served school lunches, provided housing for local school teachers, and rented rooms to traveling salesmen and others.
