The Whatcom County Historical Society has scheduled an open house and street celebration for the completion of the restoration of the Whatcom County Territorial Courthouse on Saturday, August 27, 2011. This coincides with the 153rd anniversary of the original construction of the building. The event will be from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. and will include street displays, music, food, and tours of the newly restored building. A brief program will be held at 11:30 a.m. Tours of the building will be offered every half hour from 10:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. except at 11:30. We will request $5 adult and $2 student donations for the tours. Children 6 years or under will be admitted free.
The completion of the restoration is an historic event itself. You won’t want to miss being part of this piece of history. Please be sure to encourage friends, family and neighbors to celebrate the preservation of the oldest brick building in the state of Washington.
