Lynnwood in Snohomish County, Washington — The American West (Northwest)
Alderwood Manor Heritage Cottage
For the next twenty-five years, the cottage and the other farm buildings were occupied by a series of renters. When the buildings were threatened by demolition for freeway construction in 1997, the Alderwood Manor Heritage Association rescued the cottage and moved it to a temporary location.
The cottage was moved to Heritage Park and reconstructed in 2003-2004, with assistance from the Washington State Heritage Capital Projects Fund, for use as a community heritage center.
