Through research and photographs, the Shoreline Historical Museum’s exhibit will explore the “before” and “after” of the lowering of Lake Washington, and the effects it had on the local environment and lakefront communities. Please check the museum’s website for specific days and times.
The exhibit opening reception will take place Saturday, May 20, at 1:00 p.m. All are invited!
