Description
At long last, the trumpets have sounded and we've thrown open the doors of the Anderson School! We invite you to discover everything from The Woodshop to the North Shore Lagoon, where a pool and South Seas ...More pub await. Will you jump in or hang back and order a Mai Tai? Three restaurants. Three small bars. The Art-Deco school building with classrooms-turned-hotel-rooms. A movie theater. Weekly music. Fire pits. One-of-a-kind art. This is our latest Washington addition, a destination and gathering place for all. Has going back to school ever been such fun?! Built in 1931 as Bothell Junior High and later named after the school's first Principal, Wilbert A. "Andy" Anderson, the art-deco style Anderson School and its surrounding buildings are on five acres. You'll find us three blocks north of the intersection of Routes 527 and 522--approximately 13 miles north of Seattle, Washington, adjacent to the Pop Keeney Stadium. Less
