Welcome to University Place Historical Society!
In the fall of 1999, a small group of local citizens gathered to discuss collecting information about the history of University Place. The University Place Historical Society incorporated shortly after that on January 24, 2000. Since that time members have been active in collecting and preserving the history of University Place.
One of our successes was obtaining a National Historical Registry Designation for the Curran House. While not the oldest house in University Place, it was designed by a nationally recognized architect, Robert Price, and thus worthy of preservation.
Save the dates for upcoming programs and events for 2016!
The next regular meeting of the UP Historical Society is Wednesday, September 14 at 7 pm. Jackie Jones Hook will be speaking on Buffalo Soldiers.
November 9 program is Dry Goods and Wet Goods; Nineteenth Century Jewish Pioneers, presented by Deb Freedman.
January 11 program is on the Puyallup Tribe, Past to Present, with Brandon Reynon, Nicole Barandon, and Amber Taylor.
Unless noted, meetings are held in Suite D-2, the room adjoining the UP Museum, Windmill Village Bldg D, suite D-3 off of 37th and Bridgeport Way. This room can be entered either through the Museum or through the doors which open onto the Windmill Village Drexler St. Parking Lot.
Volunteers are always welcome!
