Arlington: $14,000 grant pushes welcome center work
The Snohomish County Historic Preservation Commission recently notified the Stillaguamish Valley Pioneer Association of a $14,000 grant award to finish the welcome center at the association’s Arlington museum.
Through February, the welcome center will be erected along 67th Avenue NE.
The center includes a hand-carved cedar map of the Stillaguamish watershed as it looked about 100 years ago, as well as hand-carved poles that hold up the roof and map.
Additional funding for the project still is needed, organizer Michele Heiderer said.
