Preserving Key Peninsula History

homepic-2The Key Peninsula Historical Society (KPHS) is dedicated to the preservation of our local history. We hold meetings, organize events, publish newsletters, digitize documents and photos, and staff our local museum.

Our mission is to gather, record, preserve and disseminate information on the history of the Pierce County area generally known as the “Key Peninsula,” so that succeeding generations of residents will have a firm and accurate record from early exploration and settlement to the present.

Entry into our museum is always FREE (donations are welcomed). If you are visiting from afar, please feel free to explore our KPHS online museum. Catch up on the latest museum happenings and news in our blog, check out the museum online store to see our collection of books, mugs, t-shirts, maps and family tree charts for sale, or stop by our Facebook page to see what’s going on at the museum.

Interested in supporting our efforts? Visit the KPHS membership page and join instantly, or if you’d like to make a general financial contribution, you can always make a donation online.
