Have you ever wanted to lead a history hike? Guide a children’s tour? Hold an audience spellbound with your recounting of Issaquah’s past? Here’s your chance! We are looking for volunteers like YOU who want to introduce people to Issaquah’s past. Interested? The first training is coming up!
The first training, on Feb 21, will start at 10 AM and last until 2:30 PM. It will cover an overview of Issaquah’s past and the nuts and bolts of interpretive speaking. Subsequent training sessions will focus on kids’ tours, speaker’s presentations, and historic walks. Lunch will be provided.
We have assembled a diverse array of events for the coming year. First, catch a glimpse of the railroading heyday at our Rails and Tales event March 13-15, where you can watch model trains run through an imaginative landscape. Then, join us on March 28th for a walk through history on our Olde Town Mine History Hike, which will start off at the historic Issaquah Train Depot Museum's freight room.
Every 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!
