Cascadia Art Museum founders Lindsey and Carolyn Echelbarger will serve as the 2018 Grand Marshals of the An Edmonds Kind of 4th Parade.

The Echelbargers have been instrumental in reviving the former Antique Mall property near the Edmonds ferry terminal into the new Salish Crossing, which now includes restaurants, shops and the Cascadia Art Musuem — the only art museum dedicated to early Northwest art from 1860-1960 era.

“Lindsey and Carolyn have been instrumental in creating what has been become the cornerstone of Edmonds’ thriving new Waterfront District: Salish Crossing. We are deeply grateful to them for their unwavering support of our community, and 190 Sunset is proud to be supporting their mission of celebrating Edmonds’ acclaimed arts and cultural community, ” said Tom Budinick, owner of Salish Crossing restaurant 190 Sunset.

“What Lindsey and Carolyn Echelbarger have brought to Salish Crossing, founding the Cascadia Art Museum and making The Salish a true destination, is simply wonderful,” added Nikki Dickerson of First Financial Northwest Bank.

Lindsey is a graduate of Meadowdale High School and Amherst College in Massachusetts. He worked in real estate development with his father and brothers and now partners with his son Nicholas in real estate investment.

Carolyn was born in Seattle but has lived all around the world, as her father was an Army officer. A registered nurse, she has lived in Germany, El Salvador, Washington, D.C., Georgia, and California, where she graduated from high school in Carmel. Her hobby is Sealyham Terriers — she has three, all champions.
