Did You Know?

NARA to lose Seattle facility and send Northwest's records to CA and MO
The National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) facility in Seattle has been approved for eventual closure and sale.

The facility was recommended for sale by the Public Buildings Reform Board (PBRB) and approved for sale by the Office of Management and Budget (OMB). As of now, a date has not been set for the closure, and the physical holdings — all of which reflect Pacific Northwest history — are tentatively planned to be shipped to Riverside, CA and Kansas City, MO.

The holdings of the State Archives will not be affected, however, we have always worked very closely with the National Archives as they are critical to historical research in the Northwest.
