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 most recent 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.
