Home About the Museum Local History Teacher Resources


The bountiful history of the Kent Valley comes alive at the Greater Kent Historical Society Museum in the Bereiter house. The museum is one of Kent's oldest and finest homes, a three story 1908 craftsman style with carriage entry. The home is furnished with donated period furniture and an extensive gallery of local historical artifacts. Outside the museum Stuart Nakamura created Another Place, Another Time, an outdoor work of art honoring Kent's Japanese-American community.
