Here Are The Oldest Photos Ever Taken In Washington And They’re Incredible

Washington has come a long way since it became a state in 1889. And since going through old photos is always fun and interesting, we thought we’d round up a few from the Evergreen State’s early days. Enjoy!

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. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
