The Edmonds Historical Museum needs the public's help.
It is three years short of its 50th birthday, and is asking residents and visitors to help keep its doors open to make it to that milestone in 2023. The museum is asking for donations of $47 , $470, or anywhere in between to reach its $4,700 goal.
The museum opened Aug. 3, 1973, with the goal of preserving and sharing the community's history. That goal is still apart of its mission today, with an active collection of over 26,000 items. Though the museum had to shut its doors in March, it has continued to share history with the community through social media and the Edmonds Beacon.
The Edmonds-South Snohomish County Historical Society and the Edmonds Historical Museum is a private nonprofit and receives no regular funding from the city, county, or state.
Community and volunteer support allows the museum to bring exhibits and local events to the community, including the Haunted Museum, popcorn at Edmonds Tree Lighting, and the Edmonds Scarecrow Festival, along with the Edmonds Summer Market, its biggest fundraiser.
