What is the Eastside?
The Marymoor Museum invites the public to attend a slide program entitled "What is the Eastside?" Feb. 9, 1-3 p.m. at the Clise Mansion in Marymoor Park. This is the first of seven public programs that relate to the Marymoor Museum's overall project called Questions in Eastside History whose goal is to reexamine the region's history.
The program will explore the origins of the Eastside and show how new research in photographs, documents and oral interviews is changing previously held assumptions about local history. The program will feature a slide presentation by noted Eastside historian Lorraine McConaghy who this month became the historian for the Museum of History and Industry in Seattle.
