Legacy Washington is an education campaign for history. Its goal is to further the knowledge of the state’s past and its continuing story. This collaborative venture, spearheaded by Secretary of State Kim Wyman, recognizes the immeasurable value of our state’s history and our promise to preserve it.
Legacy Washington includes Secretary of State Kim Wyman and a core group of staff members who promote Washington heritage, write and develop stories, and fundraise to benefit SOS historical programs. Every employee working in history at SOS contributes to its success. Legacy Washington regularly draws on the extensive knowledge of the state’s librarians, archivists and historians.
