There was a time when Issaquah’s young people ran free all summer — as long as they got their chores done first. At least that was the recollection of Jake Jones Jr., who recorded an oral history that is now in the collections of the Issaquah History Museums.
Jones recalled the summers of the 1890s when he and his half-brother Pierre Joseph Settem went fishing, camping and exploring, and no one knew where they were. At the time, the boys were about 12 and 14 years of age, respectively.

This spring’s weather is beautiful, one of the best we’ve had.
Either that or I’m just in a good mood right now. But it does remind me of past springs with nice memories of my childhood yard and in particular, our tool shed. It wasn’t a real shed; it was part of our big, old garage that was built for carriages in 1908. It had a hayloft upstairs and little paned windows for light, rather like an Andrew Wyeth painting.
