At 1:00 p.m. on Saturday, May 20, 2017, the Shoreline Historical Museum, 18501 Linden Avenue North, Shoreline, opens its new exhibit, “High and Dry: The 100th Anniversary of the Lowering of Lake Washington.” The exhibit highlights one of the largest engineering feats in King County’s history – the building of the Government Locks and the Ship Canal – and the effects on the shore and the communities along northwest Lake Washington. The exhibit runs through March 2018.

The attached photo shows the Wurdemann and Rion homes as seen from the Lake Forest Park pier in 1915, before the lowering of Lake Washington.

The Museum is open Tuesday through Saturday, 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., and admission is free.
