In the interest of Washington State History, we headed to the Lynden Pioneer museum, which is conveniently 5 minutes from my house. This place has a whole little town inside the building, circa 1900. City Hall, Fire department, post office, millinery, jail, mercantile, church, school, etc.

Lynden or any little country town circa 1900. A town inside the museum building.
Adrienne and Hailey in jail.
Fire department and city hall.
And school, of course.
Faith, Hailey’s mom, was awesome pointing things out, talking about the history of buggies and farm equipment, telegraph equipment and old time cameras. She even did a mini economics lesson, bless her.
We hit the gift shop on the way out-(I love me a good gift shop-tourist trap or not, they’re my favorite part) where I bought Adrienne old fashioned stick candy. Then we ran to have ice cream at Edaleen for
lunch a snack, before heading home.
We had a great time and getting to walk around a “town” from a hundred or so years ago. History was made a little bit more alive for the girls today at Lynden Pioneer Museum.
Own the Day!
