Washington State Historical Society

Founded in 1891 and now into its second century of service, the Washington State Historical Society is dedicated to collecting, preserving, and vividly presenting Washington's rich and varied history. The Historical Society is comprised of a family of museums and research centers, offering a variety of services  to researchers, historians, scholars, and the lifelong learners.

By connecting personal, local, regional, and national stories to the universality of the human experience, and collecting materials from our state that help tell those stories, we will make the Washington State Historical Society indispensable to the people of Washington and a vital part of state government.
