The Poulsbo Historical Society and Maritime Museum - Jim Shields and Tom Henderson

Jim Shields and Tom Henderson (Tom shown)
Jim and Tom told the story of how the Poulsbo Historical Society came to reside at their current locations at City Hall and on Front street, focusing on the need to be able to showcase the many artifacts relating to Poulsbo’s maritime history, which led to the Maritime Museum. They are currently working on recreating the pilot house of the Hyak, which brought many people to Poulsbo back when that was the only way to get here! Tom described the mosquito fleet that made many stops in a short amount of time, from Lemolo, Virginia Point, Seabeck, Bainbridge and more, transporting people and products to Pike Place Market. They have now raised $350K of the one million they need. The goal is to have the pilot house done in 2020. Jim and Tom had three “asks”: 
 
1. Come visit! There are changes each week! 
2. Join the organization — your first year is free, and it’s only $20/year after that! 
3. Please donate! They need donations to access the maximum grants!
