Issaquah History Museums invites you to stroll through a landscape of drama and intrigue, full of characters brought to life by Doug Bristol, storyteller extraordinaire.
Explore our past June 25, 2016, on an Olde Town Mine Hike and entertains participants with stories tales about the people who worked in dangerous coalmining operations.
The hike starts at 10 a.m. at the Issaquah Depot Museum, 78 First Ave. N.E., rain or shine. Advance registration is required. Get tickets on Eventbrite.
The tour of mining sites paints a vivid picture of life in a coalmining town, filling your imagination with sights, sounds and smells.
Bristol will lead participants on a moderate hike with some steep sections on well-developed gravel and paved trails. Participants will gain a new perspective on the Olde Town neighborhood through stories, historic photos, maps and observation of the changing landscape.
Participants should bring water and snacks, and wear comfortable walking shoes. The organizers request for participants to leave dogs at home. No add-on guests or children under 10 can be accommodated on the hike. All hikers younger than 18 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
