The Washington Trust is the voice for preservation in Washington State. We are dedicated to saving the places that matter in Washington State and promoting sustainable and economically viable communities through historic preservation. The Trust helps make local preservation work by serving as the voice for historic preservation and building a statewide ethic that preserves Washington's historic places through advocacy, education, collaboration and stewardship.

We work to be an effective problem-solver when local preservationists need our help on issues that threaten historic buildings. We play a critical role in helping save these landmarks by using tools such as our Most Endangered Historic Properties program and our Valerie Sivinski Washington Preserves Fund to provide media attention, technical help, and a small amount of financial assistance to help insure that they are saved.  We foster stewardship through our ownership and management of the Stimson-Green Mansion in Seattle and educate future stewards of preservation through multiple youth outreach programs.

We also facilitate several state funded programs in conjuction with the Washington State Department of Archeologyand Historic Preservation including the Heritage Barn Initiative, Historic Courthouse Program, and the Washington State Main Street Program.

Our dedicated staff, volunteer Board of Directors, members, and supporters make all of this important work possible.
