Clallam County Historical Courthouse

"Peace Through Trade" Bell

After getting settled into my space, I took a walk in the area. I saw the Clallam County Historical Courthouse, built in 1914. It is on both the state and national registers of historical sites. Just a block away is the Veterans Memorial Park. It was dedicated in 1917 as Central Park but was renamed in 1986 to honor all veterans. A Liberty Bell replica was installed in 1976.

From here I went down to the waterfront to walk around a little. I was particularly interested in the bronze Washington State Centennial "Peace Through Trade" Bell, 1989, by Duncan Yves McKiernan. It is inscribed in Chinese, English, Japanese, Korean and Russian (the major Pacific-rim trade countries). Then it was on to a really important matter: dinner at Crab House Restaurant. I had baked salmon on a plank with vegetables, pan fried red potatoes and salad. It was delicious but I just couldn't eat it all. After that I waddled back home.
