The Southwest Seattle Historical Society is honored to announce that it has accepted a donation of unique artifacts from The Original Bakery, which closed last month after nearly 90 years in business.
The bakery opened in 1935 in the Adams Building, which had been constructed a decade earlier. The bakery has had several owners, including Bernie Alonzo, who bought the business in 1975 from Bill Latta and Florian Dunbar. The Alonzo family ran the bakery for nearly 50 years until Bernie’s retirement last month. The museum received requests to accept these donated items, including posters by local historian Ron Richardson of the Fauntleroy neighborhood and the Original Bakery sign (which predated the Alonzo family) – by Anna Alonzo, Bernie’s daughter. The Historical Society’s Board of Directors voted to accept these items into its collection both for their historical value, but also because it contains few artifacts from this building and business district. house in the Log House museum,” says Alonzo, “We know Mrs. Richardson is very happy about it as well.
