The Greek-American Historical Museum of Washington State was established in 2009 with the mission of establishing an organized means of collecting, preserving and making available the history and culture of the Greek-American community in Washington State.
The Museum, also known as "Greeks in Washington", presently operates as a "museum without walls" with online exhibits in the categories of Making a Living, Making a Home, and Keeping Community. The internet provides a means of reaching the entire world and viewer responses have been received from far corners of the globe.
The primary activity of the Museum is to conduct video interviews which become online exhibits with text, photos and video segments. By the end of 2013, there were over 100 video interviews conducted and 85 exhibits posted on the site.
The Museum has established an archive to house donated or loaned items which include textiles, film, video, DVDs, costumes, clothing, bound volumes, printed materials, photos, slides, newspapers, documents, art work, audio recordings and other artifacts. These materials are available for inspection and research purposes.
The Museum has received the Charles Payton Heritage Advocacy Award from the Association of King County Historical Organizations (AKCHO). … The Museum has also been recognized by the Washington Museum Association (WMA) for its "museum without walls" because it serves as a significant model of achievement for Washington [State] museums.
The Museum is a non-profit corporation registered in the State of Washington.
The organization is governed by a board of directors and assisted by an advisory board, both with representation from throughout the State.
Officers include John Nicon, President, and Andreanna Raptis Zafiropoulos, Vice President.
