Fall City Cemetery

August Lovegren, founder of Preston, and his wife Hilma and two daughters, are buried in the Fall City Cemetery? Thanks to the efforts of Ed Holmes (see article), early photos and family stories of Preston are coming together. Many are available on the Families of Preston facebook page: Click Here to view.

August Hilma MarkersThe Snoqualmie Valley Historical Museum and Living Voices recently used Preston photos for a Preston history video.

In honor of his father's 90th birthday in 2013, Ed assembled a wonderful 110-page book entitled I'm a Little Norwegian Too: The Autobiography of Norman Holmes. In it, of course, is a lot of his family's history, but also many interesting photos from a variety of sources and lots of general Preston history. Contact Ed if you would like to see it.

If you are interested in this project or have materials to offer, contact Ed Holmes at or 253-638-1716.
