Lincoln School - Home of the Clallam County Historical Society
From its beginnings in 1948, the goal of the Clallam County Historical Society has been to preserve and to interpret for the community the historical record of Clallam County and the people who shaped its development.
The Research Library, artifact storage facility and administrative offices are located on the southeast corner of 8th and "C" Streets in Port Angeles. If you are driving, turn south onto "B" Street (toward the mountains) off of 8th Street, then west/left onto 9th Street. Parking is in the gravel lot just south of the old school building. Lincoln School is also accessible by Clallam Transit, Cherry Hill Bus #24. Call the library at (360) 452-2662.
The Research Library is the home of our document collection containing 10,000 photographs; books; manuscripts; maps; newspapers; and vertical file material. The Research Library is open Tuesdays and Thursdays from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m., and by appointment.
The Lincoln School is undergoing major renovation. For the past twenty years the structure has been the site of the internationally acclaimed CCHS Garage Sale which has been the major source of funding for renovation. The building has been seismically retrofitted and is in structurally sound condition. As of late fall, 2016, we soon hope to have modern commercial power and water supplied to the building. Later work will include a sprinkler system, elevator, and major finishing work on the fenestration and brickwork. There is much work to be done before the building is ready for occupancy. Your donations and support are appreciated.
