Log House Museum
The Log House Museum is a renovated log cabin made from Douglas fir logs, representing one of the first year-round homes to be built on Alki Beach. Over the past century, it served as the home for many fascinating people, including prominent Seattleites William and Gladys Bernard. In 1995, it was acquired by the Southwest Seattle Historical Society and converted into a museum.
This museum is devoted to showcasing and exploring the early history of the city through the use of oral history interviews and vintage photographs from the society’s collection. The current exhibit follows the Historical Society’s “Land” theme in their “Telling Our Westside Stories” series; here, you can learn about how residents have historically interacted with the area’s land and water, including the Sound, the Duwamish Peninsula, Elliott Bay, and the Duwamish River.
You can find the Log House Museum down south from our hotel in North Seattle. It is open from Thursday through Sunday, from noon to 4:00 pm. Admission is free to the public, though donations are suggested. Visit the museum’s website to learn more.
