This is a hands on museum. Our staff takes the time to
explain and demonstrate these amazing artifacts.
WHO WE ARE and OUR MISSION
In today's world of fast technologies, fake fun and video "non-reality"
.. its hard to build roots and the basics needed with your kids
unless they can have a "fun" hands on experience.
This exhibit has been designed to spark the interest of the
visitor as well as educate him or her on just how exciting and
creative people had to be to survive without TV and cell phones.
Take a tour and bring your kids for a great day or night of realreality!
This exhibit was
originally the life long dream of a great guy named Jerry Senner.
His collection process started many years ago. He has spent his life
assembling these classic tractors, implements and specialized
equipment for display. His passion for passing on some of the fun and
creative parts of the past to the next generation will inspire
everyone! We're actively adding equipment and components

" The Western Heritage Center, a historical museum located on the
Evergreen State Fairgrounds in Monroe, WA was
outgrowing its space, said operator Jerry Senner.
He set out to persuade the county to grant a piece of
nearby county-owned land upon which he could build a
much larger museum."
Our newest exhibit

*Update: Snohomish County did
designate the land for a museum, and now Jerry Senner
and the Board of Directors has
begun the process of raising $900,000 for the
construction of a new museum. It will house one of the
largest collections of antique farm equipment on the
West Coast. In a recent meeting, Senner and county officials discussed locating the space
for a new museum somewhat closer to the current museum
than the land Senner originally had in mind. WHC plans
to build the new museum in $300,000 phases.

We're expanding! Plans
are under way to build and develop and a new facility. We are actively
pursuing grant money and matching funds. The current location on the
fairgrounds is temporary.
Because of the size of of our growing
collections and the tentative future in our current building, we are in
discussions build a 30,000 square foot double decked facility on a
separate property that can house our current artifacts as well as the
new collection coming in that will require an additional 10,000 sq feet
