Mount Constitution’s tow­er­ing height and unique geog­ra­phy have made it a gath­er­ing place for diverse human and nat­ur­al com­mu­ni­ties, for thou­sands of years.

Zer­vas Group Archi­tects and Creo Indus­tri­al Arts with EDX, con­cur­rent­ly designed the build­ing, inte­ri­or, and exte­ri­or exhibits. Inter­pre­tive exhibits will be installed after build­ing com­ple­tion pri­or to the end of 2021.

The project is being con­struct­ed by an Orcas Island local con­trac­tor Hap­py Acres Inc. The Inter­pre­ta­tion Cen­ter is sched­uled to be com­plet­ed in 2021.
