Keeping Our Heritage Alive

Since 1948, the Clallam County Historical Society has been dedicated to keeping the history of the north Olympic Peninsula alive. The Society actively collects artifacts pertaining to Clallam County, operates a research library, is currently restoring the historic school building shown above, and tells the story of our county in the exhibits at The Museum at the Carnegie.


Contribute to CCHS

Here's a thought: do you have something to contribute to the preservation of the history of your community? It could be things that grandma had in her attic that you're not sure what will become of in the future. It could be an interest in volunteering to help preserve the archives and artifacts in the CCHS collection. It could be to assist with research. It could be that a financial contribution to further the mission of the historical society. Consider this and contact CCHS---scroll down to the bottom of the page for phone, e-mail and donation connections.


Museum at the Carnegie

The Museum at the Carnegie is now closed for the winter until March.The museum is located at 207 S. Lincoln Street in Port Angeles, just north of the Clallam County Courthouse. Upon reopening there will be new seasonal exhibits including the celebration of the centennial of the Port Angeles Coast Guard Station at Ediz Hook. Watch this space for details, and check the CCHS Facebook page for current events.
