Join us August 5th for Experience Historical Kent, home of the Mill Creek Neighborhood walking tour and Kent Historical Museum open house featuring the debut of a new exhibit!
Come meet members of the Smith family as we unveil “Smith Brothers Farms, a Kent Legacy.”
The Kent Historic Museum will be hosting a monthly Mystery Book Club starting Wednesday, September 13, 10:00 to 11:30 am!
If this interests you, please join us and bring a mystery book or two to review and choose for the remaining two months this year. Our first book will be “Still Life” by Louise Penny. This is a series starring Inspector Armand Gamache and is available at your local library.
When a ‘series’ is selected we will read the first one and then a list of the remaining books on the series will be handed out for your own personal reading.
We look forward to meeting you and discovering new authors!
Here’s a great article shared with us by Tyler A., about his grandmother, Queen of the Lettuce Festival that year! It’s from Time magazine, July 13, 1936. Thanks Tyler!

Thanks to a generous donation, we have enough to restore the large leaded glass window at the Museum! Thank you!!!!
Now we can start saving to restore some of the smaller windows 🙂
Thank you for everyone who has donated to this project!
We still need some additional funds to reach our goal of $8,521.00. We are short $950 to restore the large front window in the living room of the Bereiter House Museum. The Large living room window is in the most need of restoration as the leaded glass part of the window is very bowed and if it breaks the restoration work will be more expensive.
If you are able, please send your donation marked:
Large Window Restoration, 855 E Smith, Kent, Washington. 98030
We have a great photo of soldiers leaving for WWI saying goodbye at the Seattle train station. It is on a glass plate negative. The photographer was L.W.Clark.
Come to our Annual Gala “1917 One Hundred Years Ago”, to learn more about WWI in Washington State.
