Note – Due to the Covid19 pandemic our events, tours and research help at the museum are temporarily suspended.   however please see our contact us page .

The Stanwood Area Historical Society operates the historic house museum known as the  D. O. Pearson House, The Floyd Norgaard Cultural Center (a former Oddfellows Hall) and The Eldridge Center (The Eldridge Center was originally known as the Stanwood Camano History Museum built in 1991 behind the Pearson House).

SAHS was incorporated in 1972 and three years later purchased the D. O. Pearson House, the home of the first Mayor of Stanwood.   In 2001 it began a major fund raising campaign and added the former I. O. O. F Hall  (now the Floyd) and Tolin House to our facilities.  We have grown and now have an ambitious schedule of activities and many new projects in the museums and in the Floyd Norgaard Cultural Center.  Please consider joining us to be part of this growing and active heritage organization!  (see our mission statement below)

Currently all buildings are closed until further notice due to COVID. When we resume being open, check in at the Tolin House (Business office).  If no one is there, you may try the Eldridge Center/Museum 2nd floor for volunteers working on projects.
