Sculpture and Historical Sites Walking Tours

Since the early days of La Conner, the arts have been an important part of the culture of our community – today La Conner is known as one of Washington State’s most-loved arts communities La Conner History.

Sculpture Tour

Each year, the La Conner Arts Commission selects sculptures, on a competitive basis, and then exhibits them as a sculpture exhibit walking tour throughout town. These impressive works, on loan from sculptors around the Northwest, are for exhibit and for sale. The proceeds from sales are used to purchase public art for the Town of La Conner. “Crossing Point” at the Skagit County Historical Museum; “Apple Tree” and “Spirit Wheel” near Maple Hall; and the “Fish Bridge”, currently by the boat launch, are examples of public art the Town owns. The Arts Commission manages La Conner’s permanent collection of art and sculptures.

Below you’ll find information on the current exhibit.

Historical Sites Walking Tour

La Conner history and heritage goes back thousands of years, the land on the delta near the mouth of the Skagit River has been home to the Swinomish Tribe. Since the early 1860’s it has also been home to La Conner, Skagit County’s oldest community.

Take a stroll and tour our historical sites.  Many of the historic bulidings are located along the waterfront, “the hill” and throughout town.
