Eastside Heritage Center is a 501(c)(3) organization created for historical preservation and education in Eastside (King County, Washington). It is based in Bellevue, Washington. The organization was founded in 2001 through a merger of the Bellevue Historical Society and the Marymoor Museum (formerly in the Clise Mansion at Marymoor Park in Redmond).[1]

Offices are in downtown Bellevue and the historic Frederick W. Winters House, also in Bellevue, which houses a small exhibit space. Larger exhibits are held at various locations in the area, such as Crossroads Mall.[2] A "mini museum" opened at the Key Center tower in downtown Bellevue in 2007,[3] and is no longer open.

The Eastside Heritage Center presents the annual Bellevue Strawberry Festival, with support from the city of Bellevue.[4]
