The Washington State Historical Society plans to contribute $9.737 million to fund 36 projects across the state as part of its Heritage Capital Projects (HCP) program.

“We are honored to play a role in building projects that support public access to Washington’s rich history. These grants result in an investment of state funds in numerous local communities,” Lissa Kramer, Heritage Capital Projects manager for the Washington State Historical Society said in a statement.

Some of the projects to be funded include restoring historic buildings, preserving archaeological sites, and the construction of new facilities that provide preservation activities and exhibits.

The Quincy Valley Historical Society & Museum is a three-time beneficiary of the HCP according to Executive Director Harriet Weber who said the society has been a “good partner” for her organization.

“When we dream dreams bigger than ourselves, we must have partners who help us reach them,” Weber said in a statement.

In the nearly two and a half decades since the HCP program was established, more than 350 projects have received more than $90 million.
