Tukwila to cut ‘Ceremonial Toilet Paper’ at Heritage & Cultural Center June 29
The restroom improvements and Grand Re-Opening of the Tukwila Heritage and Cultural Center will be celebrated with a non-traditional ‘cutting of the toilet paper’ on Monday, June 29 at 5:30 p.m.
The event will also celebrate the 40th anniversary of the founding of the Tukwila Historical Society.
The center is located at 14475 59th Ave South in Tukwila.
Tukwila Mayor Jim Haggerton and other dignitaries will take a giant scissors to a roll of toilet paper custom printed with the Tukwila Historical Society logo.
“Everybody cuts a ribbon,” quipped Tukwila Historical Society President Louise Jones-Brown, “to demonstrate what a uniquely wonderful place Tukwila is to live and work, we do things a bit different.”
The Heritage and Cultural Center had restricted usage while the restroom was remodeled and brought up to current building code for accessibility requirements. The architecturally significant and historic building was built in 1922 as a two room schoolhouse. Through the years it also served as Tukwila City Hall and as a branch of the King County Library System.
Today it houses a collection of historical artifacts and is the home to the Tukwila Historical Society. It retains much of the original Craftsman style Architecture.
