Give Big 2018 support will be directed towards preservation of the 1901 Pullman Parlor Car located on Whidbey Island in Puget Sound. This former Northern Pacific Railway car operated on trains between Seattle and eastern Washington. Beginning in April 2018 and continuing into May this rare, intact artifact will be moved to the Museum in Snoqualmie where it will be restored to its former early 20th Century glory and be able to operate on the Museum's interpretive railway. This project has a projected cost of more than $70,000 and the move will be performed by a business that specializes in the movement of historic homes. The car will be extracted from the beach and moved on a barge to Seattle where it will make the remaining portion of the journey to Snoqualmie on the highway.
The Museum is grateful for the $10,000 contribution to the parlor car move from the Schwab Fund for Charitable Giving.
