When Chapter 180’s West Coast Clock and Watch Museum (WCCWM) opened at the old courthouse in Bellingham, WA during fall, 2000, it was never intended to be long-term. It was to be a temporary exhibit to use while achieving the ultimate goal of a permanent home. Therefore, in 2015, WCCWM and the Antique Gas & Steam Engine Museum (AGSEM) began talks to merge WCCWM into AGSEM’s "family" of museums and organizations in Vista, CA. In June, 2016, the collection began being exhibited inside AGSEM's History of Local Agriculture (HOLA) Center. Since then we have received a number of rare and beautiful pieces, and now, Chapter 180 is working to expand this amazing museum and collection into a building of its own!
