Living in the days of Coronavirus
The Skagit County Historical Society shall preserve and present the County’s unique cultural heritage for the enjoyment and education of all. At the Skagit County Historical Museum we are tasked with preserving and presenting the wonderful history of our County. While we often think of history as something that happened many years ago, in reality what happened yesterday is history! So – our plan is to capture your story and the stories of many other Skagitonians as we navigate this time of Coronavirus. It is historic, and will be discussed and researched by generations to come.
