Tumwater history renewed

June 21st, 2018 by Ken

The City of Tumwater has entered into a contract with the Olympia Tumwater Foundation to manage city-owned historical properties along DesChutes Parkway.

As determined, the Foundation – which currently manages the Schmidt House and Tumwater Falls Park, will manage the Henderson House, the Crosby House and Tumwater Historical Park.

Discussions are underway as to just when the Henderson House will re-open and in what context.  While the Daughters of the Pioneers manage the Crosby House, it’s actually owned by the City of Tumwater.  The Foundation will use its expertise in property management to assist when necessary.

It’s possible the Henderson House and its photo exhibits may re-open by September, but things are not static and dates of opening could change.
