Facilities Improvements at the Log House Museum

Although the Log House Museum is temporarily closed, the Southwest Seattle Historical Society has been busy making improvements to the facility.

If you’ve passed by the Log House Museum in the month of August you have probably noticed that our main sign has received a refurbishment thanks to Board of Trustees member Mike Shaughnessy, who volunteered his time and effort to complete the work. Take a look at the before and after photos below:

We’ve also completed upgrades to the ADA ramp at the museum. In particular, Mike made important improvements to several of the posts that secure the handrail on our ADA ramp, which had deteriorated significantly due to weather. These upgrades guarantee that the ADA ramp is safe for everyone who utilizes it to access the museum.

We have many more projects in store for the weeks ahead. Thank you to Alki Lumber, who donated the sign restoration materials. Special thanks to Mike Shaughnessy and his fellow Board members Kerry Korsgaard and John Bennett for everything they are doing to improve the facility during this period of closure as well as to our dedicated volunteers who are maintaining our Native Plant Garden. And thanks to all of you! Your generosity and support makes this work possible.
