Mr. Carnegie’s Grand Tour


…to Mr. Carnegie’s Grand Tour of Washington, an annual heritage touring adventure that celebrates Carnegie libraries – the cultural legacy of 19th-century steel magnate Andrew Carnegie – and nearby heritage sites and cultural destinations.

Beginning in 2014, we will launch a new Mr. Carnegie’s Grand Tour passport containing an expanded listing of Carnegie Libraries from both Washington and Oregon! Passports will be available at the museum and here on our website beginning in May 2014.

This tour is a project of the Carnegie Library Consortium of Washington, a special initiative of the Clark County Historical Museum, in Vancouver, Wa. It is designed to help residents and visitors identify Washington’s Carnegie libraries, as well as other historic points of interest. CLCW wishes to promote heritage tourism, history and commerce, and preservation of these classically elegant buildings so they are safeguarded for future generations.
