Washington State History
  Washington State Travel Tip

loop_museum_windmill.jpg Washington was settled by the Europeans sometime in the 18th century, so it's a young state compared to its eastern cousins. However, it does have historical treasures: Steilacoom (1854) in Tacoma Pierce County is the oldest incorporated town in the state; Whitman Mission National Historic Site (1836) commemorates one of the area's first missions. One of the state's oldest houses, the Covington House (built in 1846) is in Vancouver. Vancouver is also the site of Fort Vancouver National Historic Site, the western headquarters of the Hudson's Bay Company. As for Port Townsend, the entire town belongs in a museum.

The Washington State History Museum is a historic gateway to Washington's past, present and future. Highlights of the museum include a peak inside a traditional Coast Salish plankhouse, a video trip down the Columbia River, a soaring 52-foot electrical tower, and a Boeing B-17 flying over Washington.
