“Anacortes at 125,” an exhibit celebrating the 125th anniversary of the incorporation of the City of Anacortes, will close soon at the Anacortes Museum. The last day to see “Anacortes at 125” will be Sunday, March 26.

The exhibit details the city’s history from its boom days to today, as viewed through the lens of the City departments that have provided its citizens with both essential services (water, streets, police and fire suppression) and enhancements to their quality of life (such as a library, museum, and parks and recreation). It’s a fun look at the development of the community we enjoy today.

Opening April 1 at the Anacortes Museum will be a month-long Antique Quilt Show. Eight or 10 prized old quilts – some from the museum’s collection and some from the private collections of Fidalgo Island Quilters guild members – will be displayed, as well as other treasures from the museum’s textile collection. The event is part of FIQ’s annual Quilt Walk, which is an official Skagit Tulip Festival event.

The Anacortes Museum, 1305 8th St., is open 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesday-Saturday and 1-4 p.m. Sunday (closed Mondays). There is no admission fee, but donations are appreciated. For more information, call (360) 293-1915.
