Sr Vice Commander Carl Kurfess has arranged for Zabine Van Ness and Chris Szarek of the Northwest Veteran’s Museum committee to speak to the post about the planned Veterans Museum at Heritage park in Lynnwood, located at 19921 Poplar Way.
The Mission of Heritage Park is to interpret the heritage of Lynnwood and the neighborhoods which once formed the community of Alderwood Manor. Heritage exhibits throughout the park tell stories of life in early Alderwood Manor, and its historic structures have been renovated and repurposed as community resource facilities. At present, these include the South Snohomish County Visitor Information Center and Wickers Museum in the Wickers Building; the Heritage Resource Center in the Superintendent’s Cottage; the Sno-Isle Genealogy Library in the Humble House; and Interurban Car No. 55. Heritage Park is owned and operated by the City of Lynnwood, in partnership with the Snohomish County Tourism Bureau, Alderwood Manor Heritage Association, and the Sno-Isle Genealogical Society.
