Visit a working sawmill!

**Saturday, AUGUST 21 3:30-4:30 pm

Visit a working sawmill!

Join us for an interesting presentation on the history of the Isackson Sawmill. Duane Isackson, whose father Henry Isackson founded the sawmill in 1936, will talk about the mill and give a demonstration. This is a great family event!

There is parking available, but carpooling from Fall City would be a good idea. Drive toward Redmond on Highway 202 approximately 12 miles, to the traffic light by the gas station at NE 244th. Turn left on 244th, and the sawmill is immediately visible from the road on the right side.

If you have questions contact Cindy Parks at (425) 444-6960.

 
*Hop Shed Work On Hold*
Fall City Hop Shed 2016
Hop Shed c.2016

Many thanks to all who have sent in donations for the Hop Shed work. We will keep everyone informed, but getting funding from King County Preservation is not looking probable.

In the late 1990s, extensive restoration of the Hop Shed added 5 tiers of new timbers at the bottom, but the remaining 9 tiers above that are the original 1888 timbers, which are beginning to seriously deteriorate. In the North side photo (shown location, from the 2016 Assessment) the shifting of the structure due to decay of the timbers at the corners now causes runoff from the roof on the east side to fall directly on the old timbers below.

Thought and discussion about the future are under way. Watch for updates.
