Learn about Issaquah’s Architecture in Free Event on January 10th
Join the Issaquah History Museums on Jan. 10 for Charlie Sundberg’s take on Issaquah’s history as seen through architecture.
The free program will be at 11 a.m. at the Issaquah Depot Museum, 78 First Ave. N.E.
From the original mining company houses on Squak Mountain, to the re-created Pickering Barn, to the expansion of new neighborhoods throughout the community, people continue to shape history and the community with more than wood and concrete.
Sundberg, a preservation planner for King County, will share a slideshow of photos and history about the architecture here. The talk will be followed by a conversation with the audience. Ask questions about how we build, how we plan and the nature of what “historic” architecture is.
