Edmonds Waterfront Center presents 'Edmonds From the Beginning'


Last updated 1/7/2021 at 10:36am

The new Edmonds Waterfront Center sits on the location where neighboring Indigenous peoples found natural resources to facilitate and complement their lives.

From initial planning to recent completion of the Center, consideration has been given to the significance of its location during that early period and in the years culminating in Edmonds' recognition as a town.

"Viewing the beautiful new Center with its sparkling views of water and mountains elicits thoughts of those stewards of the land and sea who came before us," said Julaine Fleetwood, a Waterfront Center board member.

The Waterfront Forum, consisting of free presentations by local experts, will kick off with

"Edmonds From the Beginning," a three-part Zoom series.

– Jan. 13: "Significance of Place," presented by Carol Sanford, speaker, author, executive educator.

– Jan. 27: "Indigenous Peoples," presented by Dennis Lewarch, Suquamish Tribe Tribal Historic Preservation officer.

– Feb. 10: "Early Settlers/Sawmill Town," presented by Katie Kelly, Edmonds Historical Society director.

Each presentation will start at noon and end by 12:30 p.m., with an additional 15 minutes for questions and answers.

I would love to see an indigenous ceremony included as part of the grand opening ceremonies, when we can have it. We need to honor them and acknowledge that their history is so very important to Edmond's history.
