Lower Elwha Klallam Tribe

Elwha Klallam Heritage Center

About Us

The Heritage Center opened in 2010, and was created to be a training center and temporary office space for tribal programs.

The č̕ixʷícən village artifacts were moved from The Burke Museum in Seattle and placed on display in 2013. In 2016 we added the new Elwha River Dam exhibit.

We currently house the tribe’s TANF and vocational rehab programs, while also serving as an affordable event rental space for the community.

Rental Information

We have three rooms that are available to the public for rent. The Conference Room (Eagle’s Nest) holds up to 49 and is an ideal setting for business meetings, trainings, and family gatherings. The Art Room (Raven’s Edge) seats 24 and is well suited to small gatherings such as clubs, conference calls, or luncheons. Our Great Hall is also available to rent and would be a spectacular host to weddings, fundraisers, and lectures.

Our kitchen is fully equipped with a walk in fridge and freezer, four sandwich cold stations, deep fryer, convection oven and a smoker. We are the perfect venue to offer small cooking courses, or to prepare goods for market.

10% discount is available for non-profits. Please inquire.
