The W.T. Preston was the last operational steam boat in the Puget Sound, and is now permanently dry berthed on the waterfront near Cap Sante, in Anacortes, Washington. The vessel is a National Historic Landmark and a designated city historic landmark. The ship now operates as a history museum, and is owned and operated by the City of Anacortes' City Museum. In 2005, the Snagboat Heritage Center was built just North of the Preston. This interpretive center houses artifacts, models, maps and other historical text and information about the snagboats which maintained the area's navigable waterways.
