The Society continues to seek and collect donations of materials documenting it’s heritage. We are building a collection of books, letters, family records, newspapers and articles, photos etc. Items that may be considered insignificant by some may be of great importance and value to the Society. All donations are welcomed at the Society office located at SFHS, 1920 Dexter Avenue North, Seattle, WA 98109. Location and contact info here.
