Fairhaven Historic District

Take in some historic character during your trip to our Bellingham, WA hotel, and make a day trip to Fairhaven. This charming district is home to a number of treasured properties, important locations and appealing places to shop, stroll and enjoy a pleasant day. 

Famous features of Historic Fairhaven include:

  • The Knights of Pythias Building, built before the Depression of 1893, that served as a meeting hall for several of the Secret Societies of Fairhaven. 
  • The Bellingham Bay Hotel and neighboring Jenkins Boys Building, constructed in 1901 and 1903. 
  • The Terminal Building, the oldest surviving commercial structure in Fairhaven since 1888.
  • The Monahan Building, containing a saloon called The Board of Trade on the original wagon trail that connected Fairhaven with towns along the bay.
  • Sycamore Square, also known as The Mason Block, and the center of Fairhaven's business community for over 120 years.

There's also plenty of places to indulge your shopping needs, from boutiques to antiques to artwork, as well as tons of dining and drinking options. Pick up some delicious goodies from Papa's Treats, or enjoy a round at Keenan's on the Pier, and enjoy some of Washington's best contemporary artists and jewelers while walking through Gallery West or Whimsey.
