After a long process, the Museum was awarded placement on the Washington State Heritage Registry of Historic Places on February 20, 2014, for the Hamilton-Worthington House. This honor is based on the cultural/historical significant of M.F. Hamilton and W.J. Worthington and their families for their contributions to the social, economic, and cultural development of early Quilcene beginning in the 1880’s. It also recognizes the architectural significance of the mansard roof 2nd Empire Victorian house built by Hamilton in 1892, and purchased and lived in by the Worthington family from 1907 to 2013. This registry is granted and maintained by the governor’s Advisory Council on Historic Preservation and the Washington State Department of Archaeology and Historic Preservation.

On October 8, 2014, the house was awarded placement on the National Register of Historic Places. This honor was given by the U.S. States Department of the Interior, in recognition of its significance to our cultural history.

In a letter to Larry McKeehan (Museum Secretary and registry coordinator) Janet Rogerson, Washington State Capital Projects Manager sent her congratulations:

“I was very pleased to receive your lovely and timely announcement of historic preservation listings! Please pass along my sincere congratulations to your entire board. You’re all doing wonderful work and I’m proud to be working with you! You have much to be thankful for this Thanksgiving.” ~ JR
