WHO WE ARE
We Couldn't do it without our dedicated Volunteers
The North Bay Historical Society was formed by a small group of long-time residents of the North Bay area in 1997 with the intention of preserving the history of the area while there were still a good number of people that could provide oral histories, photos and facts concerning the area and artifacts.
In the early years they collected information, registered the local buildings with historic significance or at least where the buildings had been and their history. They were recognized by Washington State as a 501(c)3 organization on December 4, 1997.
In 2011 the director Michael O'Sullivan became interested in preserving the Sargent Oyster building which has been recognized as historic by Washington State and qualifies to be on the National Register of Historic Places. The NBHS took on the project of restoring the building and turning it into a museum. Since then members have continued to move forward with this work.
