Mee Kwa Mooks Park Celebration

I can’t think of a nicer way to spend a Saturday morning than to learn some history about a neighborhood park and an original West Seattle family.   This morning a new sign was unveiled for Mee Kwa Mooks and a Emma and Ferninad Schmitz grandchild., Alan, was present to give first hand stories of life at the Schmitz home.

It’s hard to believe that this home was torn down.   Just north of the park, if you look up the long driveway, the white house that is currently there replaced the Schmitz home pictured here.

Mee Kwa Mooks Park is expanisve.   What a generous gift from the Emma and Ferninad Schmitz.
