Julia Butler Heritage Center/House to be open


The Julia Butler Hansen House, the oldest house in Cathlamet and Wahkiakum County, will be open Saturday, May 20 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. The house was the residence of the Kimball, Butler and Hansen families for 116 years.

It was the home of the late Congresswoman Julia Butler Hansen and was also the home of Maude Kimball Butler, Julia's mother. Maude was a noted Southwest Washington watercolor artist and educator. Her collection of watercolors depicting Cathlamet in the 1890's and early 1900's is on display in the house.

Julia's many awards from her 43 years in public office are also on display.

Tours will be conducted by David Hansen, son of Julia Butler Hansen.
