COMMUNITY INVITED TO ATTEND LACEY MUSEUM OPEN HOUSE
LACEY, WA, July 22, 2013: The community is invited to attend a Lacey Museum open house on Monday, August 5, from 4:00 to 6:00 p.m. The Lacey Museum is located at 829 Lacey Street SE in the historic neighborhood of Lacey. During individualized tours, guests will have the opportunity to view local heritage and Lacey historical artifacts.
The museum, typically open Thursdays and Fridays from 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m., and Saturdays from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., is opening its doors on a special day for this event. The Lacey Historical Commission will hold their August monthly meeting following the open house at 6:00 p.m. Meetings are usually held in Lacey City Hall Council Chambers.
The Lacey Museum is located in a historic structure that was originally built in the later 1920s by Fred Russell as a private residence. In the late 1940s, the building was used by the Lacey Volunteer Fire Department. After Lacey incorporated as a city in 1966, it became the first city hall. In 1979, the decision was made to create a local museum on land donated by the Lacey Women's Club. The building was moved from Pacific Avenue to its current location on Lacey Street. In 1981, the Lacey Museum opened to the public.
