City of Olympia recommended for $1M Heritage Capital Project Grant

The City of Olympia has been recommended for a $1 million Heritage Capital Project Grant from the Washington State Historical Society for rehabilitation and preservation work on the 1939 Olympia Armory building. Grant recommendations must go to the State Legislature for final approval and inclusion in the 2023-25 Capital Budget. This is one of 29 grants statewide that support communities in providing public access to history by preserving and interpreting Washington's history and heritage.

In Olympia the grant funds will support an initial set of repairs and improvements needed to allow the City to open the doors of the old Armory as a new Creative Campus for Olympia. The Armory building is listed on the Olympia Heritage Register and is eligible for the National Register of Historic Places.
