The museum is open for the summer season. We hope you can join us for one of our upcoming Events! The walking tour was a great success on May 21st. If anyone wants to schedule a tour for a group of between 5-12 people, please call 360-793-1534. Suggested donation is $5 per person and each participant receives a commemorative map of the town with thumbnail images.

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.

The Pickett Museum is open from 12 noon to 3 pm on Saturdays and Sundays from Memorial Day weekend through the end of September and offers special mid-week tours by appointment. You will find not only exhibits but videos, a computer photo catalog, and a computer mapping system for comparing town property ownership decade by decade.

    Hello. I am searching for photos and information about the following surnames: Redick, Cleveland, Mowbray. My dad and his parents and grandparents lived in Index. He was born in 1919 and name was Arthur Redick. His sister was Dorothy.
    Any help or direction would be appreciated.

    Thank you.
