Hunt for History Within the Walls of the
Kittitas County Historical Museum and Beyond

Explore participating venues throughout our historic downtown to uncover Ellensburg’s fascinating past while supporting local businesses along the way. This brand-new scavenger hunt, brought to you by the Kittitas County Historical Museum and its partners, is designed to introduce you to some of our community’s wonderful shops, galleries, and other establishments, as well as transport you through time to uncover the history of our area.

Visit the participating businesses listed below to search for a historical photo of Kittitas County. You will identify the photos by their bright red frame, and each historical picture will be accompanied by a story of its significance. Travel from business to business to experience our local shopping, dining, and other offerings, as well as uncover the history of our area.
