The Snoqualmie Valley Historical Museum, serving Fall City, Preston, Snoqualmie, North Bend, Cedar Falls and Snoqualmie Pass for nearly 50 years, came into being as the result of the initial work of one woman, Ada Snyder Hill. She came into the Valley in 1910 to teach school and early on began collecting the historic items that made up the exhibit she arranged for the 1939 celebration of the platting of North Bend. They were the nucleus for the present day collection that includes cherished artifacts and anecdotes from all corners of the Snoqualmie Valley.
The first home for the artifacts was a room in the North Bend High School where Mrs. Hill was a teacher. There, for nearly the next decade, she continued to add items as they were donated and, without help, catalogued them, arranged the displays and took visitors on tours.
The collection has since grown and was moved to a larger building. It is presently housed at 320 Bendigo Blvd S in North Bend in the Gardiner Weeks Memorial Park. The collection includes the ledger from the Meadowbrook Hotel, William Taylor’s hat and gun, the Fall City Study Club scrapbooks and memorabilia; among many amazing photographs and artifacts. A visit will give you a unique prospective on the evolving Snoqualmie Valley history.
The Snoqualmie Valley Community Network works locally to reduce youth substance abuse, to prevent teen suicide, to foster meaningful community connections with youth, and to coordinate civic engagement opportunities for youth & adults in the valley (such as the Be the Change Leadership event, Key Leaders Summit, the Healthy Community Coalition, & the Rise & Shine Volunteer Recognition breakfast). SVCN’s vision is a Snoqualmie Valley where ALL residents thrive!

Young Life doesn’t start with a program. It starts with adults who are concerned enough about kids to go to them, on their turf and in their culture, building bridges of authentic friendship. These relationships don’t happen overnight — they take time, patience, trust and consistency.
So Young Life leaders log many hours with kids — where they are, as they are. We listen to their stories and learn what’s important to them because we genuinely care about their joys, triumphs, heartaches and setbacks.
We believe in the power of presence. Kids’ lives are dramatically influenced when caring adults come alongside them, sharing God’s love with them. Because their Young Life leader believes in them, they begin to see that their lives have great worth, meaning and purpose.
This is the first step of a lifelong journey; the choices they make today, based upon God’s love for them, will have an impact on future decisions — careers chosen, marriages formed and families raised — all ripples from the time when a Young Life leader took time to reach out and enter their world.
