Photograph collections--over 2000 cataloged of 1880's forward--historical and contemporary varied subjects include local communities, residences, businesses, lumbering, railroads, creamery, mills, etc. Reproductions made through the museum for a small fee.
Over 80 pioneer oral history transcripts recorded in the 1970's for reading, or copying for a small fee.
Catalogs of newspaper clippings, 1930 (and earlier) to present, all indexed by names and subject and original publication date & source. Catalogs include: Births, Weddings, Family History, Anniversaries, Obituaries, Local History, Business History, Homes and Buildings, School-Related, and more.
We also have a collection that features artifacts and memorabilia on display at the museum representing the area's rich history. Several physical objects, including beautifully colored calendars, hand-made quilts, phone directories and the memorandum book of Enumclaw founder Frank Stevenson, showcase the early life of the town and its citizens.
The Society continuously accepts historical donations, and also interpets, exhibits, and preserves memorabilia of the Plateau (and to a lesser extent, the Pacific Northwest), while assisting researchers for the benefit of the general public, schools, and other organizations.
