To celebrate the Lopez Museum's 40th anniversary, we are collecting Lopez photos from the 1970s – a very interesting time here. Please let us know if you have images we could scan – or you could email photos you have scanned (we need large files, 5MB to 10MB, to make good quality prints).
And please share our Facebook page with your family and friends, and click the "Like" button while you are there.
We are very excited to announce our new book, Images of America: Lopez Island, by Susan Ferguson and the Lopez Island Historical Society.
The book features 200 of the best images of Lopez from our collection, and stories of Native islanders, early settlers, farmers, fishers, quilters, shopkeepers, schools, kids, families, and all your favorite island places.
The Lopez Island Historical Society Museum is located in the heart of Lopez Village on Weeks Road, across from Islander's Bank.
The museum is open noon to 4:00pm, Wednesday through Sunday, from May through September.
We are also open year-round for research projects by appointment. Call 360-468-2049 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
