The Whatcom Museum acknowledges that we gather on the traditional territory of the Lhaq’temish – Lummi People – and the Nuxwsá7aq – Nooksack People – who have lived in the Coast Salish region from time immemorial. The Museum honors our relationship with all of our Coast Salish neighbors and our shared responsibilities to their homeland where we all reside today.

City of Bellingham Self-Guided Historic Tours

Experience the evolution of downtown Bellingham through historic photographs available as an interactive story map on your smart phone (or on your desktop computer if you want an armchair tour). You will see how downtown has changed since the first settlers arrived in 1852. Photos are from the Whatcom Museum’s Photo Archives. To take the tour visit www.cob.org/historytours.
