Tour: The Architecture of Agriculture

Join Julie Koler, retiring King County Preservation Officer, on a day tour of significant heritage sites in the Snoqualmie Valley to focus attention on the importance of preserving remnants of the county’s agricultural roots and conserving open space as the area adapts to the demise of large scale dairying. Highlights include stops at Cooper Barn, undergoing adaptive reuse for a distillery and wedding event venue; Jubilee Farm, a dairy barn now the centerpiece of a thriving biodynamic Farm; Eagles Hall, Tolt Park, Hjertoos Farm, and Vincent Schoolhouse in Carnation; Carnation Farms for lunch and a presentation and tour of the farm (now a camp for chronically-ill children) with the grandson of the original owner; the Dougherty Homestead in Duvall; the Hopshed, Masonic Hall, and other Fall City landmarks; and the Mill Owner’s House and WPA Fieldhouse in Preston. You will come away with a new appreciation for the changing dynamics of farming, promising new programs to support preservation of historic resources, and the Snoqualmie Tribe’s work in the Valley, as well as discussion of archaeology and the work that King County is doing to prepare for climate change.
