Pioneer lawyer and Territorial Legislator Daniel R. Bigelow and his schoolteacher wife Ann Elizabeth White Bigelow built Bigelow House in the 1850s. They were pivotal figures in early Washington history and the struggle for women's rights and public education.

The house is a charming example of the Carpenter Gothic style popular in rural America during the mid-1800s and is still surrounded by more than an acre of the family's original land claim. The home displays original documents, artifacts, and furnishings representing 150 years of local, state and regional history.
