Event description
Join us for our virtual fall fundraising event, where we are celebrating the new oral histories in our collection!

About this event

The staff and board of the Issaquah History Museums are excited to host this virtual fundraising event in honor of Issaquah's storytellers and our (the community's) growing oral history collection. Admission is free! Look forward to a short but sweet program, including:

  • Remarks from Issaquah's Mayor, Mary Lou Pauly.
  • A video presentation comprised of some of our favorite quotes from recent oral history interviews, including a professional boxer from the Democratic Republic of the Congo who is considered to be Issaquah's adopted son; a man who said goodbye to his forever-bride; and a counselor/coach who responded to direct racism with radical love and forgiveness.
  • "Raise the Paddle" segment.
  • Learning more about the lives of Issaquahns past and present!

About the Issaquah History Museums' Oral History Project:

We have been conducting oral history interviews for over 50 years. As a local history museum, connecting with our community is what powers us to share the past and preserve the present. During the pandemic, with the Depot and Gilman Town Hall Museums closed, we realized that conducting oral history interviews was the perfect way to stay connected while remaining committed to our mission.

Over the past year and a half, we have had interviews with nearly 20 individuals, with more in the works. Oral history interviews get transcribed and added to our online collections database. Check them out at https://issaquah.catalogaccess.com/!
