Virtual history tour of Issaquah, Washington

Wednesday, June 16, 7 p.m.

Please join us for a virtual history tour of Issaquah.

Issaquah predates most of the cities on the Eastside of Seattle. It had a raucous history that included coal mining, logging, and sawmills, and was a main railroad stop. It also had a connection to the skyjacking story of D.B. Cooper.

Erica Maniez, executive director of the Issaquah History Museums, will share stories and photos of the early history of the city, including coal mining and logging, and the town hall and jail and other fun tidbits. 

Please email to register for this event.  

A Zoom link will be sent to you closer to the event.
