Historical Society of Federal Way’s cabin season opens June 9

Tour the Denny and Barker cabins at West Hylebos Wetlands Park

The community is invited to enjoy an afternoon of history and heritage at the West Hylebos Wetlands Park, 411 S. 348th St., from noon to 4 p.m. Saturday, June 9, to mark the Historical Society of Federal Way’s cabin grand re-opening.

Federal Way’s historic Denny and Barker cabins will be open for tours, and docents will be on hand to walk visitors through the no-frills daily lives that local pioneer families endured in the 19th century. Representatives from Heritage Roses Northwest will present on the “Sweetbrier” roses at Denny Cabin, which are direct descendants of seeds carried to Washington by Louisa Boren Denny.

The event marks the Historical Society of Federal Way’s 2018 cabin season, when Federal Way’s historic cabins are open to the public on the second Saturdays of every month. Cabin season runs through October.

For more information, visit www.federalwayhistory.org or call the Historical Society’s offices at 253-945-7842 between noon and 4 p.m. on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays.
