On January 6, 1913, Duvall was incorporated as a city by its rugged pioneer citizens. The center of the present-day town was located on a hillside homesteaded by Francis and James Duvall, loggers who arrived in 1871. At that time, logging and farming were the driving economic forces in Duvall which utilized 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, businesses and citizens will be celebrating all aspects of Duvall’s history and future throughout the year 2013.
One way the city is celebrating the birthday is through an official logo designed specifically for the special occasion. Last fall the city held a contest for individuals to submit a design for the logo. There were many great submissions, and the winning design came from Matthew Fisher.
If you would like to show support of the centennial by displaying the logo in your window or on an event banner there will be no charge for its use. If you would like to license the logo for merchandising there will be a small one-time fee for its use.
The city also has centennial sponsorship opportunities, where your name or business will be included on Duvall Centennial-led activities.
