Washington Territorial Timeline

The Washington State Library has a number of web sources about Washington history. Included are several online presentations about Washington history, including the Washington Territorial Timeline. To recognize the 150th anniversary of the birth of Washington, the Washington State Archives has created a historical timeline of the Pacific Northwest and Washington Territory. This timeline covers the years of 1540-1899 in nine segments. With the help of pictures and documents from the State Archives, the timeline recounts the major political and social events that evolved Washington Territory into Washington State.
