Last year, the Ketchikan City Council directed City staff to develop a concept design for an expanded City museum on the site of the existing Centennial Building, which has housed the Ketchikan Public Library and the Tongass Historical Museum since the 1960s.
The architects, working with
Museum staff and interested citizens, have developed a concept
design for the new building that will be a showcase of Ketchikan
history and culture. It includes expanded gallery space for
permanent and changing exhibits, enlarged storage areas for artifacts
and archives, space for public presentations and school programs,
improved work areas, and a spectacular display of Ketchikan's
historic Ellis Air Lines Grumman Goose, now under restoration.
