The Washington Historical Society was founded in 1959, focused on preserving Washington Missouri's history. The society purchased the old Presbyterian Church building at Fourth and Market Street in 1995 and in 2001 hired a full time director.
Besides its many exhibits and archives, the museum also houses the Four Rivers Genealogical Society.
The museum is open annually from March 1 through December 23.
