Letter: Volunteers are historical society’s lifeblood

Jul 12, 2017

Mukilteo Lighthouse is the icon for our city. It’s image is on businesses, signs, Lighthouse Park and more. The buildings are on the National Register of Historic Places.

We see it every day, but how many of us are aware of what it takes to preserve and share this wonderful slice of our history?

In 1991, the Coast Guard gave ownership to the city of Mukilteo and the Mukilteo Historical Society opened the doors in 2001. Since then, volunteers have opened the doors at the lighthouse and gift shop, planted gardens, archived our pictorial history, and much more.

The historical society board plans and participates in many events throughout the year, including opening the gift shop during farmers market and Lighthouse Festival hours, and in December for gift shopping and Santa’s arrival at the lighthouse for the kids.

Volunteers are the lifeblood of our historical society. We welcome new members and encourage participation in the many activities we sponsor, helping to preserve and share the wonderful heritage of Mukilteo Lighthouse.
