Update from our Director

History is always under construction, and so is our website! Due to a phishing attack, we had to take our website down, and are in the process of building a new and improved website. Over the next several weeks, we'll expand this website to support our mission of preserving, discovering, and sharing Issaquah's rich history. We invite you to explore the site as it develops, and let us know what you think.

Meanwhile, we have a festive winter lineup of events! Meet us on November 29th for fun at the historic Issaquah Train Depot Museum where you can help Deck the Depot, and then join jolly ol’ St. Nick for a ride on the Issaquah Valley Trolley! Then, in January, we'll settle in the comfort of the historic Issaquah Train Depot Museum's freight room to enjoy a rousing discussion about Issaquah's architecture.
