In 2017, the Historical Commission and city staff prepared a new site plan.
They also made preparations to construct the Historic Train Depot Trail Amenity, which will be a park shelter built to look like the original train depot. Museum staff just completed a $1 million Washington State Heritage Capital Grant application to finish construction documents for the new museum. We are excited to share that we made the list of projects that are being recommended to the legislature for funding! Awards will be made in July 2019.
