Stanwood Area Historical Society

Share your love of our Stanwood area community history!

As a Docent, you will lead tours of our historic buildings (Floyd Norgaard Cultural Center; D.O. Pearson House) and our museum exhibits for public visitors of all ages.

Tours range from 20 minutes to 45 minutes in duration, and offer an opportunity to engage with the public while sharing information about Stanwood's roots as a pioneer settlement in Puget Sound. Tours are free to the public.

The four-hour commitment is for alternating Wednesday or Saturdays, twice a month. Docents may coordinate to substitute for each other as needed. Training will be provided for the Docent role.

About Stanwood Area Historical Society

Location:

27112 102nd Ave NW, Stanwood, WA 98292, US

Mission Statement

The Stanwood Area Historical Society (SAHS) seeks to discover, preserve, and display any materials which help to establish, illustrate, and interpret the economic, social, and cultural heritage of the greater Stanwood area, including if financially possible and appropriate, historic sites and properties.

Description

SAHS was incorporated in 1972 and three years later purchased the D. O. Pearson House. In 2001 we added the former I. O. O. F. Hall (Floyd Hall) and Tolin House. We have grown and have historically offered an annual schedule of activities and projects at our facilities, including the Floyd Norgaard Cultural Center, which serves as a program space, exhibitions area (3rd floor) and rental venue for weddings, memorials and other patron events.
Our Eldridge Research Center was opened in 1991 behind the Pearson House, and serves as the collections repository for SAHS. We offer researcher visits by appointment, as well as an active genealogy program each week (Wednesdays 1-4pm), image order services for patrons, and docent-led tours of both the Floyd exhibitions and the D.O. Pearson House (by appointment and on Saturdays, 10am-1pm). Admission is free to the public.
