The Duvall Church Youth Group performed community service for the Duvall Historical Society’s annual spring clean-up of the Dougherty Farmstead heirloom garden and Pioneer Cemetery. This is the third year the Duvall Church Youth Group has volunteered time to the Duvall Historical Society and the Dougherty Farmstead.

The Duvall Historical Society is grateful for the support and commitment of these dedicated youth. It takes a community to keep history alive. Duvall Historical Society’s vision is to: preserve, record, publish and promote appreciation of the history of Duvall, the community the pioneers knew as Cherry Valley, and the lower Snoqualmie Valley. We believe in the power of history and the preservation of our culture.

Founded in 1976, the Duvall Historical Society works to preserve the heritage of Duvall and the surrounding region. It publishes books on this subject and sponsors regular programs open to the general public including educational outreach at local schools. The Dougherty House, listed on the National Register of Historic Places, is open for public viewing each Sunday, May through September from 1– 4 p.m. For more information and monthly historically-themed programs, please visit www.duvallhistoricalsociety.org.
