Update from our Director

As you enjoy the pleasures of summer, take a moment to anticipate what is sure to be one of autumn's funnest events! On September 17, Rowley Properties will be sponsoring a fund raiser celebrating Issaquah's storied history. We expect this event to be popular, and encourage you to purchase your tickets early.

There's still plenty of summer left to decorate our shoes with the residue of our past! On August 29th, amble through Issaquah's storied past on our Summer Downtown History Hike. On September 26th, join us for a longer walk on Tiger Mountain, where you will discover hidden remnants of an logging town and the mysterious "Wooden Pacific." If a roof overhead better suites the day, join us in the comfort of the historic Depot to enjoy a contemporary art exhibit. On weekends, you can also gather some friends and family and hop on the Issaquah Valley Trolley. You never know who you might see on board!

Throughout the year, we reach out to people like you to ask for help in covering the museums' most basic needs. Project grants and corporate support cover the cost of special events, exhibits, and other programming, but it is the ongoing support from community members like you that keep the foundation of the Issaquah History Museums strong. Please help us protect Issaquah’s heritage by ensuring that we have the funds we need to care for it. Join us or renew your membership today!
