Anacortes Museum opens (1959)

Saturday, January 25, 2020

Today marks the opening of our very own organization the Anacortes Museum. Though the museum's origins lie in the City Hall building, today it inhabits our old Carnegie building on the southeast corner of 8th and M. Part of the Andrew Carnegie library construction project, the building was originally opened its doors in 1910, in 1968 it would officially open as the Anacortes Museum. But before all that was an exhibit, stationed at City Hall, an idea by those in town that thought it important to preserve our history.
