The theme for the 2019 Fall City Historical Society calendar is Then And Now.
Local graphic designer Dave Gershman created the cover, a photo that is a hybrid of the first building on the Hotel Corner site (337th Place Southeast and Southeast Redmond-Fall City Road) and the current building.
David “Doc” Taylor first built a combination store, restaurant and hotel at that corner in the late 1880s. It burned in the mid-1890s and was replaced with a new, two-story hotel, which became Hotel Fall City under the ownership of Andrew and Karen Ronnei. Fire again struck in 1925, and owner Lars Johansen built yet another hotel on the site that remains to this day. It is currently used by the El Caporal Restaurant.
Fall City Calendars will be available later this month. Watch for them at the Farmhouse Market, the Fall City Holiday Market on Dec. 1, and on the website www.fallcityhistorical.org.
