Every town has a history. Discover ours!

The Redmond Historical Society serves our community through collecting, preserving and sharing Redmond’s unique heritage. We are recognized as a primary source for everything historical in our city.

 

Through our staff, volunteers and programs we serve the diverse community – families and schools, business and civic organizations, and government – as we celebrate the unique heritage of the greater Redmond region.
