A festive groundbreaking was held on Saturday, September 13, 2014 at 1:00pm, for the construction of the Shoreline Historical Museum's new Collections Facility and Research Center on their property at N 185th and Linden Ave N.

Both Mayors Shari Winstead (Shoreline) and Mary Jane Goss (Lake Forest Park) spoke, as well as Eric Taylor from 4 Culture, architect Les Tonkin, and Janet Rogerson from the Washington State Heritage Capital Projects Fund, one of their funding sources.

After the speeches, each dignitary, along with Kevin Sill, Chair of the Board of Directors, took a gold shovel and broke ground for the new building.

Afterwards they had champagne, punch and cookies.

Jeez, looks like a nicer facility than the old Ronald School. Why in the world did the museum cause so many headaches for the school district over Ronald School?
