Tackling the obesity epidemic: Snoqualmie Valley Hospital physicians offer advice
Oct 29 2012, 9:46 AM

Every photo tells a story. For Shannon Moller, a graduate student at the University of Washington, who is helping sort the Snoqualmie Valley Historical Museum's burgeoning photo collection, one snapshot in particular seemed like its story needed to be told.

Moller found rich historic detail behind that one photo, and will share her journey in a talk, "From the Record: Photos Tell a Story," at the Historical Museum's annual meeting, 2 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 18, at the North Bend Library, 115 E. Fourth St., North Bend.
The focal point: 117-year-old Falls City Masonic Hall still draws a crowd

The Fall City Masonic Hall stands as the tallest building in downtown Fall City. Located on the corner of Southeast 43rd Place and 337th Place, it has been home to the Falls City Lodge No. 66 since it was built in 1895.

Among the Masons, the word “Lodge” refers to the group of men, while the “hall” refers to the building.
With the coming of railways, a bridge over the Snoqualmie, and a thriving hop industry in the 1880s, Fall City was soon experiencing a boom. In this climate of growth, seven men petitioned the Most Worshipful Grand Lodge of Free and Accepted Masons of Washington for a dispensation to form a lodge in Fall City. The dispensation request was dated December 10, 1889 and in subsequent correspondence between the Freemasons, the name was written as Falls City Lodge and thus it remains today with the added ‘s’.
