Wednesday, March 11 5 – 8 p.m.
You are invited to a preview of the San Juan Island Museum of History and Industry (MHI). The MHI is a developing interactive educational center located in the barn on the museum grounds. The MHI will feature exhibits interpreting the past core industries of San Juan Island: Fishing, Farming, Logging and Limestone processing. The exhibits will feature multimedia presentations, interactive exhibits and items from our archives to tell the stories of these once vibrant industries.
We would like to give you a tour of the space and show you our progress to date as we near completion of the welcoming Atrium. The Atrium features an impressive three dimensional topographical map of San Juan Island which will orient visitors to historic sites as they relate to each industry.
Representatives of the MHI Steering committee will be on hand to discuss our progress and introduce the next development phases, the Logging and Lime processing exhibits set to begin this spring. We welcome the opportunity to show you the development of this new asset to our community. Light snacks and refreshments will be served.
Parking is available courtesy of St. Francis Church next door or on street.
