PORT ANGELES — Clallam County leaders are booking a big bash to mark 150 years of Clallam County history later this month.
The “History Day” event scheduled for April 25 actually takes place a day before the sesquicentennial date when the county was officially created: April 26, 1854.
The event will give the public the first inside look at the newly refurbished 85-year-old Carnegie Library building at Lincoln and Second streets.
The seismically retrofitted, 4,000-square-foot brick Carnegie has an elevator added to its east side.
It’s scheduled to reopen in August as the new Clallam County Museum, which will showcase an exhibit hall upstairs and a gift shop on the first floor.“There’s just so much detail to the building that’s beautiful,” Clallam County Museum Executive Director Kathy Monds said Sunday, marveling at the structure from its northwest corner on Lincoln Street.
