The Woodinville Heritage Museum is offering several new attractions for visitors during its open hours of 1-4 p.m. on Sunday, Nov. 4.
“We have assembled a hands-on children’s table where kids can play with various objects of bygone days while adults are viewing such new exhibits as our early 1900s teacup collection,” said collections director Suzi Freeman. “And the museum is asking the public’s help in identifying several objects from the 1920s and 1930s that have stumped us,” said Freeman. The museum has assembled a table with several of these objects in hopes that visitors might recognize their use.
Museum volunteers have also created a packet of old-fashioned holiday recipes from WHS members which will be available free to museum visitors Nov. 4. For local residents, there is a continuing display of 1920s and 1930s county maps of the Woodinville area so visitors can visualize what their own property was like in that era.
For sale at the museum are DVDs covering such topics as Woodinville’s Early Days, the DeYoung Family, Life on Hollywood Hill, 1940-50s School Days, Woodinville Methodist Church History and Life in Woodinville as narrated by Dr. John Halver, descendant of a pioneer family.
The museum is housed in the historic DeYoung House at 14121 NE 171st St., just east of the Woodinville Urgent Care Center.
