‘Between These Walls’ at Edmonds Museum

Opens Saturday, May 6

Courtesy of: Edmonds Historical Museum The Madrona Manor is a Dutch colonial at 209 Caspers St. familiar to Edmonds residents. Built in the 1920s, it was the longtime home of Betty Mueller, who died in 2013. Soon, four new homes will be built to the east of the historic residence.

The Edmonds Historical Museum has teamed up with the Edmonds Historic Preservation Commission to offer "Between These Walls," opening Saturday, May 6.

“It’s an intimate look into our shared roots through the medium of our many historic buildings,” Museum director Katie Kelly said.

With an array of photos, artifacts, original building materials, architectural plans and

more, the exhibit will give visitors a glimpse into Edmonds’ past through the buildings,

both existing and demolished, that have defined the space residents call home.

"Structures are an important look into our past and shared memories," Kelly said. "This exhibit will focus on Edmonds structural history: structures that have been preserved, those which have been lost, and those which have been revitalized and re-imagined as alternative uses. Our goal is to make it an educational and fun exhibit that allows visitors to leave with a better understanding and appreciation of our community's structural history."

The museum chose to open "Between These Walls" during Historic Preservation Month to help raise awareness of the important role historic preservation plays in building a shared heritage, sense of community, where the city has been and where it’s going.
