The Kittitas County Historical Museum (KCHM) is excited to announce the Spring Ellensburg Historic Pub Crawl event!
Join us on May 16th from 5pm to 8pm, as we share Ellensburgโ€™s interesting, colorful, and often mysterious past in a fun and entertaining way. With a night full of saloons and salacious stories, this event is great for both those new to Ellensburg and long-time residents. The Ellensburg Historic Pub Crawl makes a memorable date night, team building event, or a night on the town.
