The Department of Archaeology and Historic Preservation is Washington State’s primary agency with knowledge and expertise in historic preservation. We advocate for the preservation of Washington’s irreplaceable historic and cultural resources – significant buildings, structures, sites, objects, and districts – as assets for the future. Through education and information, we provide leadership for the protection of our shared heritage.

Increasingly, preservation is recognized as a tool for economic development.  It is the cultural and historic resources of a community that tells the story of its past, a past that makes any single community distinct from all other places.  Preserving these physical reminders of our past creates a sense of place, the result being an environment that instills civic pride and community spirit.

  1. RE: Data Request – Electronic and/or Paper

    Location: NW ¼, Section 9, T20N, R7E, WM, King County Washington

    I am a student at Green River Community College. I am currently enrolled in the Natural Resources – Geographic Information System (GIS) option program. For my current quarter, Winter 2010, and Spring quarter 2010, I will be working on a project that encompasses the above referenced location. My goal is to show the historical and current use(s) of this location. Any available photographs (aerial and/or ground), survey data, research data, field notes, parcel data, ownership documents, and/or Lidar images for use in my project would be greatly appreciated. I would be more than happy to provide you with a copy of my completed project. I can be reached either by this e-mail address or the information below. I have also included my instructors’ contact information.

    Thank you for your time and consideration in this endeavor.
