Alderwood Manor offers open house

Alderwood Manor Heritage Association offers an open house from 4 to 8 p.m. Tuesday at the Alderwood Manor Heritage Cottage, 19903 Poplar Way, Lynnwood.

A new exhibit will feature photographs and memorabilia saved from the Alderwood Grade School. The school, opened in 1921 and closed in the early 1950s, was on the south side of 196th Street SW in the 3700 block. After the school was closed, the building was occupied by the administrative offices of Edmonds School District 15, until it was demolished in 1992.
