We have developed an extensive archive of historical information, have presented interesting programs to civic groups and have assisted the schools in their history programs. Please consider sharing your family's history with us.
Among our accomplishments have been to assist the City of Federal Way in obtaining possession of the Brooklake Community Center and surrounding grounds. Through the joint efforts of four heritage groups, programs regarding the telegraph and Military Road were featured throughout South King County. An outstanding brochure that features Military Road from Steilacoom to Bellingham was designed, printed and distributed throughout the community.
Being a part of the Historical Society with your membership will help ensure these efforts will continue. We invite you to come visit us during business hours. Please consider a donation along with your membership.
