The Greater Leavenworth Museum

Expresses gratitude for the tremendous community response to our first event since 2018!  The presentation with Rollie Schmitten at Snowy Owl Theater, Icicle Creek Center for the Arts, last week was attended by over 160 people who purchased 105 of Rollie’s new book, Greater Lake Wenatchee Area History. Thank you to the volunteers for their efforts in putting together this event.  Most importantly, thank you to our museum members and those in our community who value and support the Museum. Donations totaled $1,350, which included $1,050 courtesy of David Severance.  Copies of Rollie’s new and previously published books about Upper Valley history can be purchased at the Museum, 735 Front Street, Leavenworth.
