Step into the past and take a twilight stroll to Cedar Falls, a historic townsite and birthplace of Seattle City Light. Explore the remaining houses and discover the stories of those who worked, lived and grew up in this unique setting.

This event will feature:

* Linda Carlson, author of "Company Towns of the Pacific Northwest";

* Friends of the Cedar River Watershed;

* Displays, refreshments, photos, scavenger hunt and more.

Adults and families (children ages 10 and older only) should meet at the

Cedar River Watershed Education Center, just east of North Bend at Rattlesnake Lake.

The tours will take place Friday and Saturday, Sept. 7 and 8, from 6-8:30 p.m.

Tickets are $5 per person, no registration is required. Groups should call (206) 233-1515 or e-mail crwprograms@seattle.gov.
