e are so thankful to our members, donors, supporters, volunteers, and everyone who visits. Our Museum has operated since 1961 with a mission of collecting, preserving, and sharing the history of Kittitas County thanks to the generosity of our community, and we plan to continue to be here for generations to come. But we need your support, as we cannot do this alone.

Through financial gifts, memberships, and volunteer labor, we are able to provide high-quality programs, events, exhibits, and collections care. So whether you are interested in giving an end of year gift, making a contribution in support of Giving Tuesday on November 29th, becoming a volunteer or board member – we could use your support!!

Farewell Fitterer's

After 126 years of being in business and serving the community, Fitterer’s Furniture closed their doors in October 2022. Like many, we are sad to see them close but are appreciative to Brad and crew for all their years of support and dedication and wish everyone the best. They have also chosen to preserve the Fitterer’s Furniture business legacy at our Museum – with multiple items, including the cash register, to be on display soon! If you would like to find out more about their business history, or learn more about preserving your own family or business history, please contact us today.

Great things are ahead!

From events and activities to a new capital campaign, we thank you for your support. And if you haven’t been in recently, please consider visiting and seeing what’s new at your museum.
