In May each year, the giveBIG campaign offers a simple way to donate online to Fall City Historical Society. This year your donations will help support the creation of a historic sign for the Fall City Hop Shed and the engaging of a structural engineer to map out Hop Shed stabilization measures for which we can seek a grant in September.
Donating on May 8th can be hectic! EARLY GIVING can be done now. Go to www.givebig2019.org/fall-city-historical-society, click on Donate Now and follow directions to make your donation and receive a receipt. Your donation will not be charged to your card until May 8th.

‘Though WWI was fought overseas, it had a big effect on the Snoqualmie Valley. Be sure to stop by our "history pavilion" on Fall City Day, June 8th, and discover how the valley contributed to the war effort.
This button was worn by members of the Loyal Legion of Loggers and Lumbermen who formed the Spruce Division during the war, to furnish wood for airplane and boat building.
Our newest sign at the Roadhouse Restaurant and Inn honors a site and a building which have been a focal point in Fall City for almost a hundred years. In the early days the adjoining area hosted the Riverside Campgrounds, with a pavilion where dances were held every Saturday night.
Many owners and changes happened along the way…with a cameo in Twin Peaks!…and it continues to serve Fall City and the Valley. The building is currently owned by Scott Krahling and the business by Cynthia Heyamoto and John Manning.
