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 real reality!


                                           

 OUR HISTORY

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 everyday! Come by and visit!

" 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 recently donated will be one of the largest single collections in the Pacific Northwest.
 

*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.

  EXPANSION NEEDS
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 of space!

 If you would like to explore supporting this 501 (C-3) tax deductable organization, please call us.
