Located in the meadow east of the Denny Cabin, members of Heritage Roses Northwest will discuss the rose brought by wagon train to Seattle in 1851. Also on hand will be the Crazy Quilters of Federal Way, displaying their unique samples of quilting and embroidery and discussing these distinctive examples of art, function and heritage.


Cabin Season Has Arrived!

The Historic West Hylebos Wetlands Park Cabins will be open to the public on the second Saturday of each month through October. The open dates will be May 13; June 10; July 8; August 12; September 9; October 9.

The two Historic Cabins represent different styles of 'log cabin architecture.' The David Denny Cabin was built by one of Seattle's earliest settlers as a real estate office in 1889. The John Barker Cabin, originally located on 312th Street at about 8th Avenue, was built by one of Federal Way's earliest settlers. It is the oldest building in Greater Federal Way and has a number of period furnishings and artifacts.
