A Visit to the Shoreline Historical Museum
posted by Janet
The Shoreline Historical Museum is a magical place with many fascinating exhibits. They can take you back to a simpler time in Shoreline, and give you a real sense of where we've come from, and where we may go too. Judge Ronald was one of the founding pioneers of Shoreline. He donated the land and got the first school started. He believed in education, especially for girls. He was the first judge to allow women on a jury!
These things are a precious asset to our community and worth preserving. Stop by soon to visit.
I took a tour today with my camera, and this is just part of what I found:
• Judge Ronald, Shoreline pioneer
• Classroom, just like it was in 1912
• Tower Bell, donated by Judge Ronald
• Miniatures exhibit- dolls, cars dollhouse, trains
• Old time Kitchen
• Tracey Owens Store
• Golden Wheels Trophies
• Puget Sound Antique Radio Exhibit - Amazing radios and gadgets from the earliest radio era
• Old Post Office and Archives - Open to the Public
And Much More!
