Fall City Historic Signs map updated for 2018

The Fall City Historic Signs project will have fifteen signs throughout the city by the end of 2018.

The Fall City Historic Signs project will have a total of fifteen signs throughout the city by the end of 2018.

The Fall City Historical Society started the effort in 2016. The historic signs project aims to map out each of the area’s many historic buildings and locations. The signs share consistent deign elements to create a cohesive historical theme for the city.

Each sign provides a historic photo, the history of the location, and a QR code link which can be scanned by a smartphone for more information about the location.

All of the completed signs and the written historical reports are available online at www.fallcityhistorical.org/historic-signs.html.

The historic sign project was made possible thanks to Heritage 4Culture, King County Lodging Tax Fund, and King County Community Service Area grants which helped pay for the “Early Schools” and “Fall City Brick School” signs.
