Evergreen to manage old State Capitol Museum

February 8th, 2018 by Ken

The Lord Mansion, better known as the State Capitol Museum, will shortly come under the control of The Evergreen State College.

While the actual use of the building is still up-in-the-air, many ideas have been floated.  The college could move it’s Master of Public Administration to the facility.   It could move some college staff.  It has floated the idea of a small art museum or a home for visiting lectures.

For the most part, the mansion (or museum) could operate as the “front door” for the college in the Olympia community, offering many services including rental of the Coach House for meetings or parties.

Evergreen will take over the building when the new fiscal year begins on July 1.
