Our local Fire Department has served us well for over seventy years. The graphic at the right is from the cover of a 23-page booklet prepared in 1996 to celebrate 50 YEARS OF COMMUNITY SERVICE. It also provides background and history of the Fire Department. Download 23-page booklet
At that time a long video was made on VHS. George Conway has been kind enough to transfer that video to a high-quality digital file so that it can be available online.
(Remember that much of the video is from early equipment and is not of great quality…)

Folks who enjoy the Preston-Snoqualmie Trail may not remember that it is a "rails to trails" creation. The trail parking lot on Lake Alice Road now offers a kiosk sign showing the Falls City Depot, which was located in that area, and offering some background history on the railroad. The sign was created by the Raging River Conservation Group and Fall City Historical Society, in cooperation with King County Parks Department.
Visit our Historic Signs page for links to all signs installed to date.
Generously designed by Dave Gershman and funded by a grant from the Snoqualmie Valley Rotary.
