Address: Railroad Avenue, Snoqualmie. Platted in 1889 in anticipation of the arrival of the Seattle, Lakeshore, and Eastern Railroad in the upper Snoqualmie Valley, the Town of Snoqualmie served as a commercial center for the northern portion of the upper Snoqualmie Valley. Major valley industries included the Snoqualmie Falls Electric Company power plant at Snoqualmie Falls and the mill operated by the Snoqualmie Lumber Company. Commercial development has historically centered along Railroad Avenue. Buildings standing in the district today (2000) trace the evolution of commercial building styles from wooden structures with boomtown facades to the stucco and brick cladding used in the 1920s. The 1890 Queen Anne style Railroad Depot, with a broad porch inset under the curve of its sweeping roof, had been individually designated as a Town of Snoqualmie Landmark, as has the two-story wooden 1902 I.O.O.F Hall which faces the depot.
