One of the fairs newest features on the fairgrounds in the Western Heritage Center located next to the Dairy Barn in the southeast corner of the park. A longtime dream of Executive Director, Jerry Senner, this building showcases the living history of the Snohomish River Valleys.
The center is committed to preserving stories and sharing the local history. This interactive museum celebrates the benefits of the Industrial Revolution; honors the rural technologies which characterize life in this community; and has collected, restored, and preserved historical documents and artifacts.
Educational displays include logging, mining and construction, transportation and agriculture. The Western Heritage Center will be open the full fair hours and is free to the public with paid Fair admission.
