It isn’t everyone who has a sternwheeler in the front yard. Progress continues on the interpretive center located between The Depot and the W.T. Preston, a retired U.S. Army Corps of Engineers snag boat. Tourists and residents alike will have a new place to visit this summer.

Framing under way

It appears from this photograph that the design of the new interpretive center at the W.T. Preston site will reflect that of the Burlington Northern Railroad Depot next door. The interpretive center will be administered by the city museum staff. The Preston is located at the corner of 9th Street and “R” Avenue.

Interpretive center

Work continues on a new interpretive center located between the W.T. Preston sternwheeler and The Depot. The depot was abandoned years ago by Pacific Northern Railroad. The Preston was decommissioned by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and Anacortes was named recipient in a grant process.
