About Fall City

Fall City is a census-designated place (CDP) in King County, Washington, United States. Located 26 miles east of Seattle, the community lies along the Snoqualmie River. The population was 1,638 at the 2000 census. The Fall City Airport is a small private airport community located roughly 1 mile to the east.

Based on per capita income, one of the more reliable measures of affluence, Fall City ranks 88th of 522 areas in the state of Washington to be ranked.

The community's ZIP code and phone prefix are 98024 and 425-222 respective.

History

The Snoqualmie Indian village of Yelhw occupied the waterfront from time out of memory.

The first white settlements in the area were two forts built in 1856 during the Puget Sound War to protect future settlers against possible uprisings by the native population. Fort Patterson, a few miles downstream, and Fort Tilton, a few miles upstream, were built with the help of Indians led by Chief Patkanim, and both abandoned within 2 years after interactions with the local tribes remained peaceful. A historical marker can be found north of Fall City on the Fish Hatchery Road where Fort Tilton once stood.

A trading post was established near the present day location of the Last Chance Saloon in 1869 and became a hub of the local economy. Fall City was known at the time as "The Landing", as shallow water and rapids upstream on the Snoqualmie were impassable to the large dugout canoes used for transporting goods. In the early 1870s the first local mill in the Snoqualmie Valley was opened at the mouth of Tokul Creek, just downstream from Snoqualmie Falls and just upstream from where Fall City would be. The Fall City Post Office first opened June 10, 1872.

The first small steamboats started ferrying supplies up the river in 1875. In the late 1880s, a group of Puget Sound businessmen founded and started building the Seattle, Lake Shore & Eastern railroad including a line up into the upper Snoqualmie Valley, in an attempt to build a line over the Cascade range. The land claim holder at the time, Jeremiah "Jerry" Borst, had Fall City surveyed and platted in anticipation of the people the railroad would bring, but was disappointed in 1889 when the railroad line was built a mile away from the community.

However even a mile away the railroad combined with the first bridge over the Snoqualmie River greatly improved the business of the local lumber mills and farmers, and made the area and its scenic features (such as Snoqualmie Falls) accessible to tourists. Hundreds moved to the area over the next two decades.

When the Sunset Highway, connecting Seattle with eastern Washington through Fall City was improved in the early 1910s, it further accelerated the economic and residential development of the area. Fall City was easier than ever to reach with the availability of inexpensive cars like the Ford Model T. By the late 1920s most of the population either worked in the bourgeoning tourist trade or commuted to work west toward Issaquah and Seattle.

The Great Depression followed by gasoline rationing during World War II hurt the tourist trade in Fall City. And tourism was further hampered just after the war as U.S. Highway 10 (now Interstate 90) was rerouted south directly from Preston to North Bend, bypassing Fall City and Snoqualmie. The local economy suffered further impacts as the local logging mills started closing.

Today, Fall City is a bedroom community to the high tech industry of the Seattle metropolitan area with large suburban estates just outside of the community juxtaposed with the historical homes and farmsteads built in its heyday.

Geography

Fall City is located at 47°33′59″N 121°53′42″W / 47.56639°N 121.895°W / 47.56639; -121.895Coordinates: 47°33′59″N 121°53′42″W / 47.56639°N 121.895°W / 47.56639; -121.895.

According to the United States Census Bureau, the CDP has a total area of 1.3 square miles (3.4 km²), all of it land.

Fall City sits at the confluence of the Snoqualmie River and the Raging River and is sometimes, albeit rarely, subject to flooding during the autumn and winter months. More typical is a strong east wind as pressure gradients carry higher pressure air across Snoqualmie Pass and down the Snoqualmie Valley.
