<p>The Enumclaw Plateau Historical Society maintains an impressive collection of local history at its museum, housed in a building dating back to 1909 when it was first built as a Masonic Hall.</p>
<p>Through the last century, the building also served as the site of an Episcopal church before the Historical Society purchased it in 1995 -- it became home to the museum in November 2005.</p> <p>On two floors, the museum has on display a wide variety of items showcasing the rich history of the Enumclaw Plateau region, including photos, documents, toys, tools, foods, needlework, musical instruments, children's photos and shoes, historical maps, and clothing. Videos and reference books help to round out the Museum's offerings.</p> <p>Members of the Historical Society have also undertaken the task of indexing important announcements throughout the last century that were published in the town newspaper, the Enumclaw Courier-Herald, including births, obituaries, business and school items. This project remains ongoing.</p> <p>The Museum is open two days a week to visitors; 10 docents serving in teams of two at a time are present during visiting hours to help answer questions and provide more information.</p> <p>While the Historical Society does not maintain its own website, visitors are encouraged to visit both <a href="http://washingtonruralheritage.com/">Washington Rural Heritage</a> and the <a href="http://wrh.statelib.lib.wa.us/cooliris/digitalcollections.html">State Library Digital Collections</a> to learn more about the region's history.</p>
