In 2008, 107 years after the town of Kenmore was named, Kenmore Heritage Society set about to create an interpretive center to preserve the area’s early history for future generations. The result was the History Path, a kid-friendly series of panels located along the walkway to the fishing pier at Log Boom Park. Each of the eleven interpretive panels informs visitors of a different aspect of Kenmore’s colorful past.

The Path was spearheaded by Tom and Bobbi Traeger, and is dedicated to Jack Crawford, Kenmore’s first mayor.

The final panel of the project is The Story of Rhododendron Park, located near the covered picnic area of Rhododendron Park (6910 NE 170th St.). The base of the panel is made of recycled brick from the original structure built on the property in 1920.
