These 10 Hidden Gems In Washington Hold Historic Keys To The Past

Washington has had a long, fascinating history. Over the years, we’ve had several military forts built to help protect our cities surrounding Puget Sound, many of which are now preserved as public parks. We’re also home to many abandoned towns where you can still find old relics, and even a few hiking trails that follow along old railways. Here are 10 of the many lesser-known places around our state where you can get a closer, first-hand look into the past.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately.
