We connect the future, through the present, with the past. Since 1948, the North Olympic History Center, formerly the Clallam County Historical Society, has been dedicated to keeping the history of the North Olympic Peninsula alive. The NOHC manages a research library, an artifact collection, and an education program.

COVID-19 Update

Because of an increase in local COVID-19 cases, we have made the difficult decision to once again close our campus to the public. We reopened by appointment when cases seemed to plateau but starting today we will only accept research requests and deliver results remotely to protect our staff, volunteers, and the community. Please make your requests via email at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or by phone at (360) 452-2662 and please refrain from dropping in. All events are canceled until further notice. Thank you for your understanding, your interest in Clallam County history, and your commitment to public health and community resilience.
