Mukilteo Point Elliot Treaty Plaque replacement ceremony Sept 9

MUKILTEO, Wash., September 2, 2022—The City of Mukilteo will hold a Point Elliott Treaty Plaque Replacement Ceremony on September 9th, at 3 PM, outside the Rosehill Community Center.

“I am pleased that we were able to restore this piece of Mukilteo’s history,” says Mukilteo Mayor Joe Marine. “I would strongly encourage members of the public to attend the ceremony and celebrate Mukilteo’s 75th anniversary at the Lighthouse Festival after.”

The plaque was stolen in 2020, and the City is happy to now replace the historic plaque two years later. The Mayor has invited the Daughters of the American Revolution, Tulalip Tribes, City Council, and members of the Mukilteo Historical Society to join him for the ceremony. Members of the public are also encouraged to attend.

The Point Elliott Treaty was signed in 1855. The treaty is the lands settlement between the Native American tribes in the greater Puget Sound region and the United States government. It was not until 1931 that a monument and plaque commemorating the signing of the Point Elliott Peace Treaty was arranged by the Marcus Whitman Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution.
