The Kittitas County Historical Museum has an extensive collection of local history with many historic photographs and archival materials. But less than 10% of our entire collection overall has been digitized at this present time.


So we have brought together research resources for anyone interested in Kittitas County history that has been digitized and made available to the public through a number of agencies, organizations, and other sources.


Please note that this is not an exhaustive list of resources, and it may be added to over time. Sources are listed by alphabetically and by category.
