The Mason County Historical Society was formed in 1969, when members of the community realized that the history of the area could easily be lost. We are fortunate to have a wealth of photos, archives and artifacts because of their foresight. The museum and historical society continue to flourish because of the support of our members and the community.
- The mission of the Mason County Historical Society is to collect, preserve and publish the history of Mason County.
- Our downtown museum maintains an extensive archive of historical materials, including photos, newspapers, letters, diaries, periodicals and maps.
- Monthly programs of the Mason County Historical Society are held at the museum in downtown Shelton, and county-wide from Kamilche to Matlock, Lilliwaup to Belfair, where we visit historic sites and learn about Mason County history .
