Stillaguamish Valley Pioneer Museum
This museum was built by the Stillaguamish Valley Pioneer Association to preserve artifacts of the North and South Forks of the Stillaguamish River Valley. Items in this museum include, household, logging, dairy, military, railroad, sports, medical, education, transportation music, and thousands of old B and W photos. Keeping alive the heritage of the original homesteaders of the area.
This is a fabulous Museum. There are Tons of artifacts from the early Pioneer era. Great job by all the volunteers who set up and maintain this place. Super collection of donated artifacts from local residents. Our Tour Guide Trevor was very informative and patient. He told us to take our time and wasn't trying to hurry us through the museum. I would highly recommend this to anyone who has not yet visited. Exellent source for local history. Thousands of photos from the past.
This about the hall they have for rent to host your events. There was a men asking every 5 minutes to lower down the music (and we were using a 12 inch speaker). To keep the doors closed. I don't know but it is very uncomfortable especially if you are planning to DANCE. We lowered it down to the point where the guests thought we turned it off. Bad experience. I hope you have a better one.
Open and quiet. People were polite and not guarded in their conversation.
STAFF WAS VERY FRIENDLY. THE OLD TIMERS THAT WERE THERE KNEW MY WALES GRANDFATHER, DAD AND MY STILLAGUAMISH INDIAN COUSIN EDWARD GOODRIDGE!!! I WAS PROUD. THEY WERE AND STILL ARE WELL KNOWN STILLAGUAMISH PIONEERS
