Whatcom Museum

Bellingham has been symbolized by the eclectic tower, the Whatcom Museum of History and Art, since its construction in 1892. Restoration and rehabilitation projects for the building have included brick and sandstone repairs, window replacement and studies to improve the building’s infrastructure for another century of use.
