Digging Deeper is Historic Seattle’s multi-session program designed to provide attendees with behind-the-scenes insight to primary research materials in the many archives and libraries in Seattle and King County. Each month we visit a selected archive or library and receive expert advice as to what is available and how staff can assist with research projects. This program helps you to explore buildings, architecture, and history. By the time you are through, you will want to attend one or more of the events during National Archives Month in Seattle in October 2015.
On August 1, we visit the Eastside Heritage Center (EHC) in Bellevue. The EHC maintains a collection of over 30,000 items, including cultural and household artifacts from pioneer settlement through today, including farm implements, furniture, textiles, clothing and musical instruments; and archival materials, including photographs, audio-visual records and oral histories, from individuals, businesses, families and institutions across the region.
The EHC’s public research center is located in the Winters House, a 1929 Mission Revival style building that is listed in the National Register of Historic Places.
