NAWCC Chapter 180 - Friends of the West Coast Clock & Watch Museum

The primary function of NAWCC Chapter 180, Friends of the West Coast Clock and Watch Museum (WCCWM) is to provide an all-important support base for the museum. Through Chapter 180 members’ volunteer efforts, exhibit contributions and financial donations, our chapter is the driving force behind the museum.
When 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 the museum’s reopening in Vista, we have received a number of rare and beautiful pieces and Chapter 180 is working to expand this amazing exhibit and collection into a building of its own.
We also offer a variety of educational and volunteer opportunities for all NAWCC members to participate in and enjoy.
