The Edmonds Cemetery Board’s annual “Walk Back in Time” took place Thursday afternoon with a fresh approach. If you’ve attended the event in past years, you’ve heard about the likes of George Brackett, John Lund and others who have played important roles in Edmonds history. This year’s event, however, focused exclusively on women — pioneers, teachers, business leaders and more — who have helped shape Edmonds history. More than 50 people attended the event.
“One of our goals today is to recognize the contributions these women made in their own right, and not in their role as wife of one of Edmonds more well-known pioneers,” said Melissa Johnson, Cemetery Board member.
