The Index-Pickett Historical Museum is in the former home of nationally known photographer Lee Pickett whose collection of glass and film negatives is held at the University of Washington’s Allen Library, Special Collections. The museum documents Index area history using his photos as well as hundreds of images and artifacts contributed by the community since Pickett’s death.
