Celebrate the “good old days” at the Duvall Heritage Festival on Sat., Sept. 29 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Stop by the Dougherty Farmstead on Cherry Valley Road in Duvall to revisit early 1900s Snoqualmie Valley life. Tap your toes to early American popular music and sit back and listen to stories of the past.
See antique tools, tractors and a quilt turning. Watch a team of mules plow a field. Enjoy wool spinning, rope making, butter churning, log sawing, clothes washing and corn shelling demonstrations. Talk with 1913 mayor Lon Brown, former librarian Rose Norenberg and Kate Dougherty, former postmaster and mother of eight (all played by actors, of course).
There will be hands-on activities for kids. Parking is at Holy Innocents Catholic Church and a drop-off area and handicap parking is on-site. The event is free. For more information, go to www.duvallhistoricalsociety.org or www.duvallculture.org.
