Then the Historical Museum was able to purchase property for the new site.
The site is the former James Alan Salon building and adjacent house. The Museum purchased the entire property on the corner of Linden Ave N and N 185th. The former JAS building is the new Museum exhibit building and the little house next door is the office. There will be ongoing exhibits at the new site
and the research and educational aspect continues through the office, via Director Vicki Stiles and volunteers.
Many supporters and current and former elected officials attended the ribbon cutting in front of the little office building, which is cozy and a good transitional environment. The Mayor was present for the ribbon cutting. Former SHM Board president, Henry Reed also participated in the ceremony along with Director Vicki Stiles. Also present were Rep Cindy Ryu and former Rep Nancy Rust. The museum exhibits, archives, artifacts and records are all in storage.
The Museum Board is also working on plans for development of a much bigger Museum Building/complex there. This will be a long term capitol funding project. The Museum has received funding for this transitional project and future planning from 4Culture, City of Shoreline and many other public and private funders, including the Family of Judge Ronald.
