To promote diversity and inclusion, Washington State University acquired a group of historic homes
on the edge of the Pullman campus and created the Culture and Heritage Houses. Constructed in the
1920s and 1930s, the buildings were once the homes for WSU faculty and feature all brick
construction, hardwood floors, and fireplaces. The Houses are devoted to promoting community and
diversity. They include collections of art, books, and cultural items related to African/African
Americans, Chicano/Latinos, Asian American/Pacific Islanders, and Native Americans. The structures
also provide spaces for gathering, learning, and building community. The Culture and Heritage
Houses have hosted the ribbon cutting for the Pullman Historic District, cultural celebrations, welcome
picnics, department socials, and more.
Goals:
1. Assist in the development of multicultural learning communities in the College Hill
neighborhood and beyond
2. Preserve and promote learning and appreciation of America’s diverse communities,
specifically the culture and history of African Americans, Asian American/Pacific
Islanders, Chicano/Latinos, and Native Americans
3. Provide a comfortable gathering space that encourages community building and
intercultural understanding
4. Support the research, teaching, and service mission of Washington State University
The Culture and Heritage Houses are open for use by the WSU community and the Pullman
Community at large. They are available for little or no charge, and therefore we appreciate cooperation
with the following guidelines. Failure to follow Culture and Heritage Houses policies may result in
an additional cleaning charge and the rejection of future reservations.
