Fall City is blessed with an extensive and unique 520-page book on its history: Jack's History of Fall City, published in 2006 by Jack E. Kelley. It brings together materials from over 15 years of research by Jack and Judy Kelley. During the three-year period it was being prepared for publication, the Fall City community shared family history with Jack, passed many things into his care, and stepped up to help with publication expenses. As the publication date neared, it seemed important to provide a way for this community enthusiasm for our local history to continue and to flourish. Thus, the decision was made to form the Fall City Historical Society. The Society was organized under the nonprofit umbrella of the Fall City Community Association in 2006.
The Society became an independent Washington Non-Profit Corporation in September 2008 and Federal 501(c)(3) nonprofit status was granted in September 2009.
We are honored that in 2012 Jack Kelley chose to pass on the copyright, printing rights and all proceeds from Jack's History of Fall City to the Fall City Historical Society.
For community enrichment and public education, we collect, preserve and interpret the history of Fall City through photos, documents, artifacts and personal stories. We share and educate today and carry the past into our future.
