August 2012. The renovations have started!
There are many projects in store to repair and renovate the Steilacoom Tribal Cultural Center & Museum. First on the list: construct a ramp to the front door for disabled access to the 2nd floor. This is required for the Center & Museum to officially keep it's doors open to the public. Once the ramp is complete, the portico will be re-added to the exterior of the building.
Future projects include a secondary exit from the 2nd floor for public safety (also required for the Center & Museum to keep it's doors officially open), renovations to the kitchen and cafe on the first floor, and repair and improvements to the exterior of the building.
