Memory Book Cover
Preserving the Stories of Fall City is the result of a three-year Memory Book Project undertaken by the Fall City Historical Society in. Workbooks were distributed in 2007, and oral histories were done with selected individuals. Excerpts were then chosen according to section topics, and graphics were selected from the Fall City Historical archives and other sources. A total of 54 authors were included, with birthdates ranging from 1910 to 1957/ about half were born before 1930. Eighteen, shown below, attended Fall City High School, where the last graduating class was in 1944. Photos and short biographies of all authors are included at the end of the book.

 
Preserving the Stories of Fall City - Reviews
Preserving the Stories of Fall City is a well-organized and well-researched local history anthology that showcases a rich array of primary sources, including oral history interviews and first-person reminiscences, but also maps, photographs, documents and newspaper advertisements and reporting. The edited memories are a delight to read, with surprises on every page - this book opens doors into Fall City's past that would otherwise remain closed, and helps the contemporary community make more sense, encouraging good choices in the future. As such, it will appeal to youthful readers and dramatically increase popular appreciation of the Fall City Historical Society and the vital role of local history in the community. The book itself is beautifully-designed and a pleasure to read - I think it will be a major contribution to our shared history in central Puget Sound.
