The Anacortes Museum celebrated two big anniversaries on Thursday afternoon: It’s been 50 years since the museum opened in the Carnegie Library building, and 60 years since the Anacortes Museum of History Board was established. In recognition of these milestones, the museum courtyard was redesigned to make it inviting for folks who want to enjoy the garden and historic WCTU fountain. A new flagpole was funded by Anacortes Noon Kiwanis and the Anacortes Museum Foundation’s membership, and interpretive panels have been prepared to share the history of the Carnegie Library and the Anacortes Museum. A time capsule created by city residents will be sealed until 2068. Among those pictured here are Mayor Laurie Gere, museum Director Bret Lunsford, museum Education and Media Curator Kate Clark and student writers.
