Digging Deeper—Built Heritage Historic Research

In their 40th Anniversary year, Historic Seattle is proud to offer an outstanding 2014 educational program for lovers of buildings and heritage. Their Digging Deeper—Built Heritage Historic Research series invites you to explore primary research materials in the many archives in Seattle and King County. Historic Seattle is offering a multisession program designed to provide attendees with behind the scenes insight to primary research materials in the many archives in Seattle and King County. Each month we visit a selected archive 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 2014 and attend Historic Seattle’s Advocacy Workshop on November 8.

You may subscribe to the series or attend individual events. For more information on Historic Seattle and their programs visit www.historicseattle.org.
