The Duvall Centennial Committee is kicking off the Duvall Centennial Celebration and is in search of a logo that can be used by the community to commemorate events throughout the year 2013.
The area that became known as Duvall, Washington was historically the home of the Snoqualmie Native American tribe.
Duvall was incorporated as a city on January 6, 1913, by rugged pioneers. The center of the present-day town was located on a hillside homesteaded by Francis and James Duvall, loggers who arrived in 1871.
Logging and farming were driving economic forces in Duvall utilizing the Snoqualmie River and railroad for transportation.
Since the late 20th century, the city’s pastoral appeal has been drawing residents who commute to jobs in aeronautics and technology in nearby communities.
Duvall’s historic corridor has helped to define an artistic movement that has been evolving since the 1970s. The City of Duvall, community organizations and businesses will be celebrating all aspects of Duvall’s history and future throughout the year 2013. Duvall’s Centennial Celebration will kick off at the city’s tree lighting in December of 2012.
