Megan Ockerman earned her Master of Arts in History from Washington State University in May of 2017. Her thesis is well researched, making great use of the Schmidt House archives.  We’re proud of her work and asked her to give us an overview of her project for our noon hour history talk series.  You’ll learn much from this in-depth look at the Schmidt family and the business that meant so much to us here in Tumwater and Olympia.

“Heritage Builders” is the local history program of the Olympia Tumwater Foundation. Thank you to our program partners, the City of Tumwater and Thurston Community Media.

Free admission: donations gratefully accepted. Doors open at 11:30 a.m., the program begins at noon and close at capacity.
