Issaquah Oral History Videos


These are stories of old Issaquah, told by the people who lived them. Hear about the Prohibition-era Dry Squad, the role Issaquah residents played in World War II, Issaquah’s link to D.B. Cooper, and how a local church gave life to one of Seattle’s largest bio-tech companies. The followng video shorts comprise of first-hand accounts of life in Issaquah from the 1920s to the present day, paired with hundreds of maps and images from the Issaquah History Museums’ collection. The history shorts are filled with amazing stories and deeply personal memories that inform and improve our perspective on the community’s history. This project was made possible through funding from 4Culture, the Kiwanis Club of Issaquah, and area donors.
