Mukilteo Historical Society offers a number of educational outreach opportunities including Trunk Treasures, classroom presentations, field trips, group tours, historical reenactments and storytelling. Click on a header below for more information.

Trunk Treasures is part of an MHS effort to help educators teach about local history. A number of household objects from our early days in the area have been donated for hands on exploration of life before electricity, television, computers, and so many other things now taken for granted. Also included in the trunk will be a notebook with reproducible maps, stories, and photographs for teachers to use. Teachers can check out the trunk for classroom use by calling and leaving a message for Ann Collier at (425) 513-9602 or e-mail

In addition, MHS continues to seek input from teachers about other useful ways to be of assistance in the study of local history. If you have suggestions for MHS, please contact Ann Collier.
