Irene Pike and family have been steadily restoring the historic Moore-Parmelee House in Fall City. Now, they’re ready to show it off.

An open house is planned for 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 12, and noon to 5 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 13. The house is located at 4338 338th Place S.E.

With a unique timber, board-and-batten construction, the 109-year-old home is one of the best-preserved early houses in King County. Fall City sawmill worker and entrepreneur Charlie Moore bought the lot in 1905, for $40, and built the house of lumber from the Preston Mill. The home has been in Irene’s family longer than anyone else’s, hence the Parmelee side of the name. She’s been restoring it for 10 years.
