Renton History Museum
Now through 2/11/2022

Where was the Black River?! Life on the Rivers uses historic photos and maps to bring Renton’s former landscape to life. The exhibit explores the day-to-day lives of Rentonites for whom the Black and Cedar Rivers were a central fact of their lives. Whether using the rivers for transportation or leisure, as a food source or a destructive force, Rentonites’ lives revolved around these two rivers. Using their own words, this exhibit draws out the social and environmental consequences of living your life on the rivers.

The Renton History Museum is located at 235 Mill Avenue S in Renton. Hours are Wednesday through Friday, 10 AM – 4 PM.
