The Snoqualmie Valley Historical Museum in conjunction with the local Veterans of Foreign Wars and the Renton-Pickering American Legion has built the Snoqualmie Valley Veterans' Memorial. We worked with the City of Snoqualmie and the American Legion to build a Veterans' Memorial next to the Legion Hall. Members of the Museum, VFW and American Legion have been worked tirelessly behind the scenes for several years on this project and it was dedicated on November 11, 2011. Bricks are still being installed and landscaping work is ongoing.
The Memorial honors of all American Veterans' from all American Wars regardless of Valley Residence, but features as its centerpiece a monument in honor of Valley Residents who lost their lives serving in the line of duty. Several members of the memorial committee along with help from various local sources compiled a list of those lost in the line of duty; you will find the current list at the Museum. Included are names from Cedar Falls, North Bend, Snoqualmie, Snoqualmie Falls, Fall City, Preston, Carnation and Duvall. If we have unintentionally left off or misspelled a name of someone killed in the line of duty please contact the Museum firstname.lastname@example.org or (425) 888-3200 with as much information as possible so that we may verify the name.

Around the Legacy Tree are engraved bricks honoring service men and women. These bricks are still available for a donation toward upkeep in honor of your Veteran or patriot (whether or not they were ever a Valley resident). The memorial also feature flags for each of the service branches and a legacy tree surrounded by stones representing each of the Valley communities.
Donations for the Memorial's upkeep may be sent to the Museum made out to SVHM - Veterans' Memorial and are tax deductible.
