Originally a Lutheran Church, the building was purchased in 1972 by what became the Vashon-Maury Island Heritage Association to showcase our Island's rich cultural, historical, and natural history.

The Vashon-Maury Heritage Association's mission is to collect, preserve, and exhibit and interpret the history of Vashon and Maury Islands; its primary goal is to establish and operate a community museum and archive.

The Museum comes under the umbrella of The Vashon-Maury Island Heritage Association, an organization originally established by early pioneers who settled on the Island in the late 19th century.

Descendants of these original visionaries are still deeply connected to the museum, and continue to be responsible for the preservation and archiving of the Island’s heritage.

The Heritage Association is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization run by an board of executive officers and trustees.
