The Where are We? feature of the Olympia Historical Society website allows you to find out more about important historical buildings and locations in Olympia. Click on any of the orange buttons on the map to view a popup naming the location. Clicking on “more info” at the bottom of the popup will take you to a page describing the location, “then and now” pictures, and links. You can use the +/- buttons or your scroll wheel to zoom in and out, click and hold your left mouse to move around. To search locations by theme (for example, Women’s History), click on the arrow at the top of the map to display or hide theme options. You can turn off “Combined Locations” by unchecking that selection and then check another box to see which locations are associated with a particular theme. To change the basemap to aerial photography or other views, please select the icon below the zoom box.
