Pioneer Association of the State of Washington

Who we Are and What we Do

We are descendants of Washington State Pioneers devoted to preserving their legacy in the form of a museum of artifacts and genealogical records.
Our objects are:
Historical, literary, social, promote social intercourse among its members; and, to record and publish such facts with brief biographical sketches of pioneers for the information of future generations.*
Today, we maintain Pioneer Hall and the collections within. We need help in documenting the lives of early residents. Contact the Historian for information.
