Most of these photos (with the obvious exception of the recent ones) were donated to the Mason County Historical Society by the Aaro family, which homesteaded in Lilliwaup Valley and still lives around these parts (John Aaro worked for us shucking oysters until just a few months ago).

Oh you definitely should! The Shelton museum is really cool and the people who work there are extremely helpful. I’ve also been meaning to check out the Quilcene Museum… I bet there are lots of neat photos of big old trees.
