State's history may be lost in cuts

The former Lord Mansion in Olympia's South Capitol neighborhood will celebrate its 70th anniversary next year as the State Capital Museum. Chances are, it won't be much of a celebration. The museum is targeted for closure in Gov. Chris Gregoire's 2011-13 budget, as are the other Washington State Historical Society museums, in Tacoma and Spokane.
