Gallery

Welcome to the Index Historical Society gallery, showing samples of photos on view at our museum. Many of our¬†images came directly from Dorothy Pickett, wife of the photographer Lee Pickett whose negatives she gave to the University of Washington Allen Library Special Collections. Much of that collection is online through the library. A great number of our photos have come from residents’¬†family albums. Exhibits change each year, and in addition we offer viewing of our full collection on the museum’s public-access computer.
