Program: How to Mine History with Hikes
Issaquah History Museums was one of three local groups (along with Newcastle and Black Diamond historical societies) honored this year with AKCHO’s Long-Term Project Award for their use of hiking/walking tours to share their coal mining histories. Please join AKCHO on June 26 when Issaquah’s Doug Bristol explains how their program began four years ago, and how it has evolved. His team will also show some artifacts from the mining era.
We’ll meet at the Issaquah Depot Museum, address above. After the presentation, Doug will lead a short walk to the entrance of a historic coal mine.
Coming from the Seattle area on I-90, drive to Exit 17, Front Street, and proceed south. In about a mile, turn left on Poplar Street and park in the Depot parking lot.
