Don’t take our history


As a pioneer of Sunnyside since 1959-60, I read the Feb. 9 story “Planned Seattle museum seeks valley participation” with dismay.

Why are you taking our history back to Seattle? Our history needs to stay here. I am a member of the Sunnyside Museum board.

We will be displaying Hispanic history of the city of Sunnyside and we need our history. We need pictures and any other records of our community to stay here.

We also need work tools or any other history pertaining to our Sunnyside area. People need to contact our museum first.

We’ll loan what we have, but please don’t take our history across the mountains.
