Two years after it was bundled onto a flatbed and taken away for some expert TLC with the restoration experts at Artech, the Log House Museum‘s totem pole – which stood for 40 years at the Admiral Way Viewpoint – is finally close to its homecoming. The West Seattle Chamber of Commerce has announced an event on May 8th featuring Southwest Seattle Historical Society executive director Clay Eals detailing the plan to install it soon in its new home on the east side of the Alki-area museum; the plan’s already gone through city review, including the Landmarks Board, since the museum is an official landmark. See photos of the pole’s history, and a sketch of its future site, on the SWSHS/Log House museum website, here.

  2. So very glad it is saved. Many memories at that pole, some joyful, some not so much.

    I appreciate and thank those who preserve our history…from a sixty-five year westseattleite.

  4. It’ll be nice to have the old pole back “home.” The new pole is aging nicely and is growing on me.
