Claude & Starck, 1910
A Sullivanesque library by the Madison, Wisconsin firm of Claude & Starck. This firm was chosen by Hoquiam’s first librarian, a Miss Macpherson, who had previously worked in the Eager Free Public Library in Evansville, Wisconsin, also designed by Claude & Starck. Originally built with a Carnegie grant, the library was expanded by Tonkin/Koch Architects (now Tonkin Architecture) of Seattle in 1991. Because of this addition, the library’s address is now 420 7th Street.
Added to the National Register of Historic Places, 1982.
