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.

Thanks to everyone who made it a success
The Issaquah History Museums was gratified by the wonderful community participation and volunteer support in abundant evidence at our 2014 Heritage Day celebration held in conjunction with the Down Home 4th of July in downtown Issaquah.
