PUYALLUP HISTORICAL SOCIETY
MEEKER MANSION MUSEUM
To restore and preserve the Meeker Mansion, and to collect, archive and make available the history of the Puyallup Valley and the Oregon Trail.
The Puyallup Historical Society at Meeker Mansion knows that our strength lies in connecting Puyallup Valley history with current generations. Incorporating and becoming a 501c(3) in1970, the Society saved the deteriorating Mansion from a planned burning after its use as a GAR retirement home and a nursing home from 1914 to 1969. Society restoration efforts began in 1973 and are ongoing with our collecting and archiving of local history to share with the public. Proceeds from memberships, donations and fundraisers continue to help with these kinds of efforts.
