Tolt Historical Museum opens in new home
May 3, 2011 · 2:22 PM
The Tolt Historical Society Museum opened to the public for the first time, Saturday, April 16, in its new location, the Carriage Barn at Carnation Farm.
Visitors seemed to unanimously approve of the new location for the museum, which had been closed for the past year, to make the move from the Sno-Valley Senior Center to the farm, and many were reminiscing about days gone by, or scouring the racks of historical documents from the museum.
Historical society president Isabel Jones welcomed visitors and during a brief presentation, she gratefully acknowledged all of the volunteers who helped with the museum move. She also introduced Elbridge Stuart, whose family has owned Carnation Farm for four generations. Stuart offered the museum a home in with his display of 1920's and 1930's carriages from the farm last year, and has worked with the historical society to create an arrangement that benefits everyone.
The museum is open by appointment only for now. Call (425) 333-4436 to schedule a tour.
