The Ezra Meeker Historical Society was founded in 1970 to help preserve one of the town’s more important places, Meeker Mansion. We have recently changed our name to The Puyallup Historical Society at Meeker Mansion and are a private 501 (c) (3) non-profit corporation which, owns, operates, and restores both the grounds and home.
The goal of The Puyallup Historical Society at Meeker Mansion is to restore and preserve Meeker Mansion, to preserve and promote the historical aspects of the Puyallup Valley and its links to the Oregon Trail; To provide students and other visitors with programs, exhibits and events for a greater appreciation of local history and community; to serve as an education resource and repository for historical artifacts.
The Puyallup Historical Society at Meeker Mansion is dedicated to preserving and sharing the history of our region. The society is made up of people like you, who are involved in its activities. Preserving Meeker Mansion is one of those activities, but there are others as well. Admission to Meeker Mansion is always free for members (with the exception of fundraising events). Members are entitled to 10% off items in the Gift Shop. Remember that your dues are also tax-deductible.
