In honor of the 125th anniversary of the founding of Edmonds and the continuing renovation of the Edmonds Historical Museums’ property, the museum is creating a new public space right on its doorstep, and is offering a unique opportunity for you to leave your mark on history by becoming a permanent part of the new Museum Plaza.
This is a once-in-a-lifetime chance to purchase an inscribed Heritage Brick paving stone. The Heritage Bricks will grace the Plaza for years to come, and the inscribed names will become an enduring part of the legacy of our community. Future generations of Edmonds citizens will be reminded of the names of ancestors, friends and acquaintances with each visit to the Plaza.
The new space will reflect the classic Georgian architecture of the historic 1910 Carnegie Library, home to the Edmonds Museum’s since 1973. Several phases of work will include the installation of the Heritage Bricks, display structures, benches, plantings, water features and the placement of a time capsule. It will be a place to step off the street and into peaceful space, engage in conversation, read, or simply relax.
The Museum Plaza will be an integral part of downtown Edmonds’ historic Fifth Avenue corridor stretching from Hazel Miller Plaza, past the Cedar Dreams Fountain, the Ganahl-Henley Log Cabin, Centennial Square, the Veterans Memorial, and ending at the soon-to-be completed 9-11 Memorial at the Edmonds Fire House.
