Kittitas County Historical Museum Evening Lecture Series

The Kittitas County Historical Museum hosts an annual evening lecture series with topics from all across the state. Each lecture is scheduled to begin at 6:00 PM and to end at approximately 7:30 PM.

Each year we partner with the Humanities Washington Speakers Bureau to provide presenters that spark conversation on a number of interesting topics both locally and statewide.

Each lecture is free and open to the public. Refreshments will be served.

The lecture series is certainly one not to miss!

We have expanded the Annual Lecture Series for 2018, increasing the number of presentations from 5 to 8!
