Review for Highline Historical Society, Seahurst, WA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Based upon my experience with the Historical Society, the organization does the best job of reconnecting our community members with their past. Let me share an example of what I'm talking about.

A couple of years ago the society sponsored a community forum on "Sports in Highline" The panel covered topics such as Title IX,which allowed more opportunities for girls in sports and the change from junior highs to middle schools and its impact on high school sports. However, the largest attention getter was the Church League for boys basketball that started in the mid 1950's and ended in the early 1970's. Thirteen churches sponsored teams and as long as the boys attended church on Sunday, they could play on Monday. There were several members of the audience that day who played in the League and they shared memories and experiences that were as fresh as the day they happened. They reconnected with their past with joy and gusto.

The Highline Historical Society has the ability to present opportunities for our citizens to reconnect with their history in Highline better than anyone else.
