About the DuPont Historical Museum

The Museum tells the story of the unique role that DuPont played in the development of Washington State and the Puget Sound Region. Exhibits include displays and artifacts from the four eras of DuPont history beginning with the Native Americans, through the Hudson's Bay Company, to the DuPont Company, and finally Weyerhaeuser's planned community, Northwest Landing. The Museum also features archival photographs, tools used to manufacture dynamite, and displays of Life in a Company Town, 1906 to Today.
