Young and Richardson's Fisheries Center was dedicated on 11/27/1950. A Seattle Times article of the day before indicated that the center cost "about $1,000,000." (See "Fisheries Center Will Be Dedicated," Seattle Times, 11/26/1950, p. 15.)

In 1954, the Fisheries Center housed one of the largest collections of fish specimens in the U.S. It had over 200,000 specimens of 1,800 species of fish.

An addition designed by Ralph D. Anderson was built in 1968.
