The Sammamish Heritage Society is a non-profit organization established in 1999 to discover, document, and preserve the history of Sammamish. The Society was founded with the goal of helping new residents and visitors learn about, and understand, the diverse history of Sammamish.
The SHS hosts lectures, provides historic presentations for groups and schools, contributes to Sammamish Walks, and runs history booths at local events such as Farmers Markets and volunteer fairs.
Our major current project is the restoration of the historic Reard House for use as an event space with room for exhibits, archives, and collections.
Please inquire about a membership to help us preserve our local history!
The Sammamish Heritage Society recognizes and acknowledges that everything in Sammamish, old and new, is built on land that has belonged to the Snoqualmie Tribe since the end of the last ice age.
