Pandemic People: Compare and Contrast Lived Experiences in 1918 and 2020 – Digital Tour Experience

The Southwest Seattle Historical Society is pleased to announce its second digital tour experience “Pandemic People: Compare and Contrast Lived Experiences in 1918 and 2020.” Join us for an online tour to experience the enrichment that an in-person field trip experience affords, even while we can’t be together. This tour is open for student groups Grades 6 – 12, and any interested adult groups. Sign-ups are required at least two weeks before your desired tour date. “Pandemic People” is a free experience.

“Pandemic People” compares and contrasts pandemic experiences on the Duwamish Peninsula in the ages of The Spanish Flu and COVID-19. The tour invites participants to reflect on care discrepancies between communities, public safety precautions, and first-person narratives of life in the pandemic in 1918 and 2020. How have our experiences living in pandemic conditions changed over the past century? How have they stayed the same? Join us on a digital tour to find out! 

To register, please call (206) 350-0999, or email museum@loghousemuseum.org. Tours run for approximately forty minutes. Tour availability is based on docent availability and is subject to change.

The Log House Museum is open to the public on Friday, Saturday and Sunday: Noon to 4pm. Face coverings are still required in the Log House Museum for all visitors age 5 and older regardless of vaccination status.
