PORT ANGELES — A new exhibit at the Museum at the Carnegie, 207 S. Lincoln, features four cases filled with memorabilia about the pioneer McLaughlin family, including doll clothing made for the McLaughlin sisters by their mother, Jane.
Visitors to the Museum will have the opportunity to meet sisters Jane and Ann on Saturday from
1 p.m. to 4 p.m.
They will share stories and talk more about this collection that spans 50 years of memories.
Oscar and Emily McLaughlin came to Port Angeles with the Puget Sound Cooperative Colony in 1888.
Their grandson, Harold “Si” McLaughlin was a well-known educator in the county who taught in Clallam Bay, Forks and Port Angeles as well as being a principal at the high school in Sequim.
His wife, Jane, was a reading tutor at Jefferson School in Port Angeles and was an accomplished seamstress.
Jane started making her three daughters’ clothing in the late 1930s. Jane, being both frugal and creative, took the scraps and made matching outfits for the girls’ dolls.
She continued on special occasions to make the doll clothing into the 1980s.
One of the girls died early from cancer, but sisters Jane and Ann kept their treasures.
This collection recently was donated to the Clallam County Historical Society.
The museum is open Wednesday through Saturday from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m.
For more information, phone the society’s office at 360-452-2662 or email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
