FHNA History Project &

Kirkland Heritage Society Present:

Christina Brugman’s “First Families of Juanita”

When: Wednesday, May 28th at 7PM
Where: Heritage Hall in downtown Kirkland, 203 Market St., Kirkland, WA 98033

Christina has prepared a power point presentation of her “First Families” collection of extraordinary photographs documenting the history of our area dating back to the eighteen hundreds.

Some highlights:

  • Photographs taken in 1894 when the Shaffer Brothers and the Woodins logged Big Finn Hill.
  • An 1895 photograph of the Ole Josten homestead.
  • Images of Juanita Beach undeveloped (much as it was when Native Americans made their way to these shores), as well as images of the beach and diving platform much later when holiday makers made their way from Seattle in Model T’s, and outfitted themselves in full coverage bathing suits.
  • Tulip fields where Albertsons is today.
  • Transportation: Cars, roads, local ferry landings and steam powered ferries.
  • The lowering of Lake Washington by 9 feet in 1916.

This collection includes over 130 images and depicts the land, the institutions, buildings, homes, families, events and many more aspects of life in this area over time.

We hope you’ll join us. Friends and family are welcome.

Please send your confirmation along with the number of people who will be attending with you to Barbara Radford. Contact by email form or you can call (425) 820-2413.
