Virtual History Programs

Since we can not meet in-person during the coronavirus pandemic we will be hosting virtual history programs on Zoom. Please join us every other Monday at 10am for Readings from the Archives. Museum staff will read a research paper about a Washington topic from the museum’s archive, share related photos, and a brief discussion with the audience will follow.
