The Shoreline Historical Museum held a ribbon cutting ceremony for their new Collections and Research Facility this Saturday September 18, 2021.

The new building rises behind the original buildings

The collections building is a two-story 5,000 square foot building, built like a fortress! Spaces are clean and bright. Cabinets and cupboards provide storage space. Ceilings are high.

Museum board president Edie Loyer-Nelson opened the ceremonies, welcoming guests.

At the ceremony, Vicki Stiles, who has been director of the museum for 29 years, formally announced that she has retired. Kenneth Doutt has accepted the position as the new executive director.

Mayor Jeff Johnson of Lake Forest Park was there, as was Deputy Mayor of Shoreline, Keith Scully.

The honor of wielding the scissors went to King County Councilmember Rod Demboski (third from left, waving scissors)

And now, for a look inside the building...
Wonder how long it will take to unpack all the boxes?
