Museum supporters demonstrate outside Shoreline City Hall

Monday, July 26, 2010


Supporters of the Shoreline Historical Museum demonstrated outside of Shoreline City Hall today, hoping to get the support of King County Executive Dow Constantine, who was meeting with members of the Shoreline City Council and city staff.  

Constantine stopped to talk to some of the 30 people who waited to see him, including three women who attended school in the Ronald School building. (Photo by Vicki Westberg, courtesy Of Paramount Importance blog).

The Shoreline School District is reclaiming its land which is under the Ronald School, currently occupied by the Shoreline Historical Museum. The School District and the Museum had a verbal agreement that the Museum would keep the Ronald School and the School District would pay to have it relocated.

The deal fell apart when the Museum was outbid for the property it wanted to purchase. The School District is proceeding with an earlier school design which builds the new Shorewood High School into the 100 year old Ronald School building, forcing the Museum to find a new location.
