Welcome to the Highline Historical Society

Mission: To collect, preserve and tell the stories of the Highline region and its people.

We won awards for our exhibit, Hope in Hard Times, from Washington Museum Association (WaMA) and Association of King County Historical Organizations (AKCHO)!

See video of the exhibit, 2014 Award of Exhibit Excellence from WaMA and Best Exhibit of 2014 from AKCHO. Thank you to 12-year old Karsten Kleitsch for visiting the exhibit and recording what he liked about Hope in Hard Times.
