The “Discover the Past” event is the first major fundraiser ever put on the by the Issaquah History Museums.
Or it is, at least, the museums’ first big fundraiser in a couple of decades, Issaquah History Museums Executive Director Erica Maniez said.

Rowley Properties Inc. has announced a scheduled late-July opening for the Homewood Suites by Hilton hotel.
The third-generation family business owns the 123-all suite hotel in the Hyla Crossing neighborhood.
