In the 25 years since Alderwood Manor Heritage Association began, a lot has changed. We’ve recovered the Demonstration Farm’s Superintendent’s cottage and opened it as our home base at Heritage Park, we’ve made new friends and welcomed back old ones, and we’ve grown to a thriving organization of over 200 members and a dedicated group of volunteers. And now it’s time for another change.
As it has grown, the city of Lynnwood has incorporated much of the area that was once Alderwood Manor. We at AMHA realize that not only do we preserve the history of Alderwood Manor, but through time, we’ve also become the stewards for the history of Lynnwood. With that in mind, on May 1, we filed paperwork with the state to officially change our name to the
Lynnwood-Alderwood Manor Heritage Association and Museum.
We’re still the same Heritage Association you know and love. We’ll still talk about Alderwood Manor, Pegasus Patrol, and the Alderwood Grade School; we’re merely expanding the scope of our heritage to officially include the history of the city of Lynnwood.
We’ll be having an open house on Sunday, May 15, to celebrate our new name, as well as our new exhibit, “Now and Then: Lynnwood-Alderwood Manor.” Come on by to see our historic and current photos, as well as the work that was done on the cottage in the month of April (new paint! new lights!). The Interurban will also be open for tours.
