WWI and the Snoqualmie Valley

Fall City Day 2019 2nd place winners

In WWI uniforms and accessories, kindly loaned by the Museum of Flight, Rick Divers (center) and Board Members (L-R) Anne Neilson, Paula Spence, Cindy Parks and Donna Driver-Kummen added special flavor to the day. They marched in the Fall City Day Parade, sang a lively version of "Over There" for the judges, and received the Second Place Award!

Fall City Day June 8th, with help from our friends!

Washington State Historical Museum shared seven exhibit panels on WWI in Washington State, which served as the basis for our tabletop display, along with materials which brought it home to the Snoqualmie Valley. Photos from MOHAI and Whatcome Museum, help from Preston historian Ed Holmes, display items from Tolt Historical Society, and excerpts from Snoqualmie Valley Historical Museum's recent Snoqualmie Valley History Magazine all added richness. Two enclosed tabletop display cases loaned by Susan Garbe allowed us to safely share items from our collection. Our thanks to everyone! How nice to be in such a supportive community of heritage folks!

 

Historic Sign underway for Baxter Barn

Historic Sign underway for Baxter Barn

The next historic sign will be for the Orin Baxter barn, shown above in a 1940 Washington State Archives photo. The barn was built in 1905, then dismantled, moved and rebuilt in the early 1950s by Bill Baxter. It now stands on the Baxter Barn farm property, owned by Cory and Missy Huskinson. It is listed among the Heritage Barns of King County.
