Telling our Westside Stories with the Log House Museum – March 18

On Sunday, March 18, the Log House Museum will be at the Southwest Branch Library from 1:30 p.m. to 4 p.m. to record an oral history of Southwest Seattle. They are looking for youth (13-18) and elders to share their stories of any kind – be it “the best place to bike, swim or play, the strangest animal you’ve ever seen, or how your neighborhood has changed.” The museum is particularly interested in more participants from South Park, Highland Park and White Center.

The museum encourages participants to RVSP ahead of time so they can stagger the interviews. To register, contact the Log House Museum at loghousemuseum@comcast.net or call 206-938-5293 by March 17.

According to museum staff, the stories will be gathered and turned into a traveling exhibit in August to share with schools, libraries and community centers. A permanent exhibit will be in place at the museum in February and the stories will eventually be available for viewing on their website: http://www.loghousemuseum.info/
