The Anacortes House History and Plaque Program seeks to enrich our understanding of the history of Anacortes and to identify houses of historic interest. This program is an adjunct to and in no way intended to replace the Anacortes Local Register. Information gathered on participating buildings is kept at the Anacortes Museum and available to the public. The purpose of the AHHP program is to raise awareness of Anacortes's architecture, history, and those who helped make it. The plaques call attention to the development of our community and allow residents and visitors alike a glimpse into our past.
