Harrington moved to Carmel, California in 1911. Although retired, she occasionally filled in for preachers at the local church. Hamilton had an interest in local politics and in 1916 ran for election to the Board of City Trustees, but lost. In 1918, Harrington spoke on the topic of “The Old New Year,” an event for the Carmel Club of Arts and Crafts. Harrington studied at the Carmel Summer School of Art and in 1920 contributed a work entitled A Southern Slope to the 14th Annual Exhibition of the Arts and Crafts Club. It is possible that Harrington studied under William Merritt Chase as he established his summer school in Carmel in 1914. By 1920, Harrington had become the recording secretary of the Carmel Arts and Crafts Club.
