The Snoqualmie Valley Historical Museum is holding its annual meeting and program, starting at 2 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 19 at the North Bend Library. The program is free and open to the public.

The program for this year’s meeting will be a presentation on “Company Towns of the Pacific Northwest” by author Linda Carlson. The program includes a social history based on more than 100 Washington, Oregon and Idaho employer-owned communities during the 20th century. Using the history of company towns like Snoqualmie Falls, Edgewick, Cedar Falls and Taylor, places we all know and drive by every day, Carlson will celebrate the history of our Valley communities.
