The Eastside Heritage Center is committed to preserving the past as it builds community and connects people with their heritage. In addition to maintaining and preserving the largest collection of artifacts, photos and archival material related to East King County, Washington, the Eastside Heritage Center focuses on sharing this collection with the community through exhibits, books, presentations and a wide variety of education programs.

History teaches us through stories

Thank you to all those who joined us at the 7th Annual Eastside Heritage Center Benefit Dinner this year! Your generosity raised over $65,000 towards the stewardship of Eastside history. Eastside Heritage Center is honored to steward and share the stories of “us”, a community built through years of hard work. Please enjoy the following stories that were shared at the event and learn how dreamers and caring for one another can help us continue to grow as a community, today and tomorrow.
