Historic Signs
The Fall City Historic Signs project was begun in 2016 and by the end of 2018 will include fifteen signs. Download Historic Signs Tour Map brochure. Numbers below show locations on the Tour Map.
Each sign includes one or more historic photos, brief text, and a link to more detailed reports with additional photos. Signs and links to reports are displayed below.
Our thanks to Heritage 4Culture/King County Lodging Tax Fund for supporting our work, and to King County Community Service Area grants which helped with costs for the EARLY SCHOOLS and FALL CITY BRICK SCHOOL signs.
Many thanks to the folks with Savor Snoqualmie for including on their website a Fall City Historic Walking Tour, incorporating materials from our Historic Signs project.
