Whitman County Historical Society Archives
The Whitman County Historical Society, located in Colfax Washington, was formed in 1972 with the goal of preserving the history and culture of the region. The archives are housed at this location, The Gladish Community and Cultural Center (formerly Pullman High School). The archives contain 700 inventoried collections, map collections, photo collections, and indexes of genealogical records.
Backstory and Context
In addition to this archive, the historical society operates two area museums-a county history museum in Colfax and the Roy Chatters Print Museum. The society publishes a newsletter as well as a periodical called the Bunchgrass Historian. Finally the society maintains historic structures in the area such as the Holy Trinity Chapel, the Perkins House, and the Jones School House.
