The Center for Wooden Boats

Mission: “To provide a gathering place where maritime history comes alive through direct experience and our small craft heritage is enjoyed, preserved, and passed along to future generations.”


4Culture is King County’s cultural services agency established to continue the work of the King County Arts Commission, Public Art Commission and the heritage programs of the Landmarks Commission. In mid-2003, 4Culture launched a Preservation Program to promote the value of historic resources in building a unique sense of place in our region. Through the integration of four program areas, 4Culture stimulates cultural activity and enhances the assets that distinguish our communities as vibrant, unique and authentic. 4Culture has been involved with the Northlake Community Wharf project as a result of the recommendations from the Maritime Heritage Task Force.
