Clallam County Courthouse

Here’s a view of the Clallam County Courthouse, located in Port Angeles. It’s a beautiful old building, with a newer wing housing many of our county services. Built in 1914, it is on the U.S. National Register of Historic Places. The bell tower, which chimed while I was shooting, contains a bell that was shipped around Cape Horn from Boston. In a nod to more modern concerns, the building contains 126 solar panels, installed in 1979, which produce an estimated 20% of the electrical power used in the building.

  1. I can see why this is on the National Register – it’s beautiful and so well-kept. And those solar panels! You Washingtonians are so with it! Amazing!
